Hmmm, I had to go through a late-life crisis to discover that ceramics are one of my major passions. My lifelong creativity had been destroyed by an unkind act and then was very slowly rekindled when pottery was suggested as therapy. We all walk a different path.

All of this was only in 2011 and now I can look back at great joy, endless inspiration tied with endless plans for new projects. With the help of my diligent teachers I have met with some success - being accepted for CSA exhibitions and having one work in the Corobrick collection.

I like to work very intuitively, going with the flow and letting the clay or porcelain also having a say. I think we are having quite a journey together ahead still.

Oh, I am also a little bit of a rebel, don’t like to stick to conventions too much.
