I graduated from the University of Ulster Belfast in June 2012 with a First class Honours degree in Fine and Applied Arts. Since Graduating I have set up a small Ceramics Studio in an old 1770’s blacksmiths workshop (the Smithy) at my home on the Ards peninsula on the east coast of Northern Ireland.
I draw inspiration from beautiful old ceramic tiles, intricate architecture and the patterns it contains as well as the places I go, things I see and the people that surround me every day. I carry my camera everywhere to enable me to capture these images and moments as they happen. These are an endless source of new ideas and inspiration reflected in the bright and colourful tones, patterns and colours used in my work as well as the delicate illustrations. I work mainly in Ceramics but bring elements of metal, wood and illustration to my work.
