St Ives harbour on a sunny day.


I grew up in St Ives within a creative family and enjoyed making art as a teenager. I moved to Devon in my late teens to pursue non-creative career paths and it was only when my children were small that I rediscovered the joy of creating again.

We moved back to St Ives in 2010 and I started exploring different art forms for a few years before taking some throwing lessons in 2015 - I was immediately hooked and quickly realised I could incorporate favoured techniques from painting and printmaking into a 3D format.
