I am a sculptor and ceramics artist based in East Lothian, Scotland. I mainly make portraiture, raku sculpture, and ceramics. My large portraiture sculptures are inspired by the human form in transitional states.
My smaller sculptural pieces tell a story. I create a character and a form in which to tell that story. I love to create Goddess sculptures that represent the wisdom and diverse beauty of women. As an artist and a mother, I make a point of sculpting and celebrating all body types.
My Scottish raku sculptures are inspired by the beautiful ancient buildings I see around East Lothian and beyond. Wee but'n'ben cottages, small village houses with sash and case windows, tall traditional town houses. I also sculpt iconic rural buildings, such as churches and inns.
I also make selection of ceramics ranging from the traditional to the more unusual. I am drawn to organic shapes and all things fantasy and magical. I use a range of glazing techniques, which incorporate traditional glazes, raku glazes, the use of glass, metals, 24 carat gold leaf and organic materials.
Please get in touch if there is something specific you would like me to make.
A recent favourite for clients has been raku pots decorated with hair from their pets. These work beautifully and are a lovely way to always remember beloved pets.
