I began studying Ceramics in 1989 and have an undergraduate and post-graduate degree in this area. I have continued to develop my personal practice since graduating from the MA Course in Cardiff in 1994 and have been included in many group and solo exhibitions. I have been a member of the technical team in the Ceramics department of CSAD, for 14 years and I completed my PgC Teaching in Higher Education in 2009 and became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy the same year.
