I am a British artist based in Bristol, UK.

I create ceramic sculpture and 2D artworks.

My artistic purpose is to create art that seeks to evoke curiosity. It is up to the viewer to explore their imagination and make decisions about what they are seeing. The ideas behind my artworks has to resonate with me and at times it can be interchangeable with my own experience. I want to communicate a fascination for the unknown as life is full of questions.

The Historic English Heritage monument Stonehenge helped me to develop this way of thinking. To this day its purpose and meaning still largely remains unknown. It forces myself to be curious, to learn anew and reflect upon my existence.

I do not intend to replicate its presence in any way but use this as a foundation to generate ideas around imagination, possibility and curiosity. These resulting artworks can be described as surreal, unusual and thought provoking.

I am also a UNESCO​ International Academy of Ceramics IAC member.
