I studied at Camberwell School of Art in London in the 80's, gaining a degree in Ceramics.

The technique I developed there of sculpting paper-thin layers of porcelain over wire frames has transferred surprisingly well into needle-felting.

The process of creating an animal out of a wilful bundle of wool or deadweight of clay seems to me fascinating and absurd in equal measure. I like to capture the moment of stillness between movements, the moment when something extraordinary might happen.
