I have spent a lot of my life fighting stereotypes around misogynistic opportunities of learning and pathways of creativity. My work reflects the imbalance and currently deeper opening of artistic equality. I am currently reflecting and researching the language of gender, especially gender fluidity.
The starting point for my becoming a worthy artist has been to master the skills required to be a great craftsperson. Then I felt in a position to allow these skills to guide me in the realisation of my vision for pieces of art. I mainly work with ceramics as my starting point and add metal additions. I am a qualified stained and fused glass artist, a blacksmith and metalworker.
Being an artist enables me to show myself fully, my creativity is my natural language, no force it just is. It enables me to explore the personal and worldly questions whilst being in the moment with the physicality of my art.
