How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

My work evolves as I engage in the process of making, rather than it being planned with precision in mind. My ceramics therefore have an organic aesthetic. I make small sculptural pieces, which are expressive rather than functional. In addition I have used ceramic forms as part of mixed media installations. I use mostly porcelain and black stoneware and enjoy the contrast of colour and texture that this affords.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being an artist is not my main identity, as my profession is that of psychotherapist. My artistic practice offers a contrast with this, and yet, I also find that for me, both art and psychotherapy enhance each other. Art enables me to give visual and tactile expression to my own internal world, whilst also at times attempting to communicate on a wider societal, political level.
