I opened my studio in Samois, France in 2013 after many years in the UK where I trained at the University of Creative Arts in Farnham (BA 3D Design). My first studio was created in 2009 in Surrey, when I started designing, making and selling my own work. I am now lucky to have a lovely and comfortable workspace, in the heart of a village, nesting between the Fontainebleau forest and the Seine river, an hour south of Paris.

My favourite tool is the potter’s wheel but I also work with slabs, for the creation of houses for example.

I single-fire all my pieces, in an electric kiln at high temperature. This raw-firing (firing only once) saves energy and time.
