Ceramic works and drawing

I make ceramics and draw, creating figures and structures that evoke personal and shared 21st century paradoxes, the work is broadly figurative. Ceramic works occupy an interesting and ambiguous place between art, craft and design, taking on different guises depending on how the work is conceived and how it is shown. This mobility makes the medium even more flexible than the raw material and more open to manipulation and conveying meaning.
I have had a portfolio career in art and design which spans working as a community artist, a freelance illustrator and more recently supporting my artistic practice by working as a web designer. My Restart blog on A-N discusses some of the issues faced by any artist trying to establish a practice in the uk.
My involvement in psychotherapy, Jungian analysis and men’s groups over many years has culminated in the creation of The Artists Space one-to-one individual sessions and group workshops.
