She worked in London, Australia and Ireland as a designer until 2000.

"With a long design background, attention to imagery, form and presentation comes naturally. As a ceramicist, I enjoy the challenge of portraying my natural environment, the allure of its ever changing textures and colours, images actually created from their constituent parts, earth (clay), sand (glaze) rocks (pigments). My work often depicts expanses of sand, sea and sky, with distant horizons and detailed foregrounds creating a three-dimensional effect, a sense of calm isolation- drawing the viewer deep into the landscape and beyond."
