I trained as a draughtswoman but my interest in potting started when i attended evening classes. After a while I enrolled on a morning class at Aylesbury College, eventually going on a Teacher’s Training course which enabled me to take evening classes. During this period I was also making pottery and selling it at craft shows including the Saturday Craft Market at the Old Fire Station in Oxford.
In 1984 I purchased a small shop in Buckingham and because I was making dragons and castles at the time called it the Dragon Gallery. I now make mostly decorative pottery which I throw in my studio at home. I then take the pots to the shop and decorate them while talking to the customers. I enjoy this method of working. I use an Earthstone Clay which I decorate at the green-ware stage with under-glaze colours.
