B. 1993
MA Glass and Ceramics, University of Sunderland, 2020
BA Fine Art, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, 2015
Ceramics Technician, University of Sunderland

I am a ceramicist, mixed media artist, emerging researcher, and educator, my practice encompasses material learning, exploration, and teaching. I work across three different areas as a professional artist. I produce and market functional ceramics through fairs, retail, and commission under the name Mareware, much of which stylises the human form. My sculptural work consists of objects, installations, and engagement, which tell the stories of local populations' communities, identities, and values. As a Ceramics Technician at the University of Sunderland, I have taken opportunities to participate in research projects. I also work in education and well-being. All of which now form a part of my own practice.
