I retired to the south east coast of Northumberland following a long career in art education in East Cheshire.

Inspiration for earlier work derived from the landscapes of the Peak District, the foothills of the Pennines, the mountains of Snowdonia and northwest Scotland, the French Alps and the White Mountains on Crete. I also drew inspiration from the prehistoric cup and ring markings found in abundance in Northumberland.

I create handbuilt sculptural ceramics and hanging wall reliefs and panels. If you are interested to find out more about how I work, visiting these pages will give you some indication.


I have been very active in the community and believe strongly in contributing the benefits of my long experience in art education wherever possible. As a founder member of KEAP Creative I have installed a series of ceramic panels throughout the seaside village where I now live.
