A love of nature and the healing it can bring is reflected in these beautifully decorated hand-built ceramic vessels.

My inspiration comes from the natural world and passionate about drawing, I focus on creating hand-built ceramic vessels decorated with illustrations portraying the beauty of nature. As a Forest Schools practitioner working with young people who have mental health issues, I am inspired by the healing power of nature and strive to encourage others to notice the beauty in the natural world around them. Working from Clay Studio in Hulme, I use a range of clays to build with and my vessels range from the smallest of pinch pots to large coiled vases. I am also a member of Hot Bed Press and enjoy the challenge of combining both my ceramic and printmaking practice with a love of drawing being the foundation to all my work.
