Teacher: Paula Armstrong
I have been creating contemporary ceramic sculpture for over 20 years calling on inspiration from a wide variety of sources including gargoyles, African sculpture, sci-fi and organic forms. I enjoy the challenge of creating finely balanced pieces and delight when my work has impact involving the viewer. Each piece is individually hand-built, most often in stoneware clay.
My professional background has combined 20 years as a professional artist, exhibiting, curating, working to commission and teaching across the UK, with working in local authority, voluntary and community sectors. I have taught regular classes in ceramic art and painting and drawing, as well as drop-in craft workshops, lantern-making, and community art workshops.
