These thought provoking and humorous ceramics find their inspiration in science and society  In 2014 I was selected as ceramic artist in residence at Liverpool Hope University after graduating with an MA in Ceramic Art & Design from the University of Central Lancashire.  My thesis on public art is displayed in both the National Gallery and the National Library of Australia.   I am a Director of  a community arts centre and gallery in Skelmersdale and continue to exhibit my work throughout the UK.

THESE IMAGES OF VIRUS AND BACTERIA INSPIRED CERAMICS ARE A QUICK PREVIEW FROM MY NEW BLOG IN MEMORIUM – A BUNCH OF VIRUSES.  THE PROJECT CELEBRATES THE WELL KNOWN, AND NOT SO WELL KNOWN, PIONEERS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST INFECTION.
