I love the magical process of turning soft pliable and sometimes liquid, brown clay into highly coloured and permanent pieces of art. It never ceases to thrill me to open the kiln - it is like opening presents at Christmas.
I was born in Jamaica and spent some years there (indeed I can still remember making my first model from red clay in the garden), and later travelled and lived in South East Asia for ten years. The colour of tropical seas, and the abundant life underwater have long been captivating, and have given inspiration for some of the patterns and shapes seen in my work.
This year’s work has focused around black and white as a theme, and some Octopuses!
