Armless and Speechless
My sculptures are contained forms and have over the time growing bigger feet to keep them grounded. The armless and mouthless sculptures represent a winning award of resilience. The sculptures have a duality. They reflect both the darkness and light of life, the spirit which links us all with nature helping us to survive.
I created these sculptures from 2019 to 2022, years of uncertainty, fear and isolation. One morning in April 2020 I started drawing in my studio a series of armless and mouthless sculptures, a representation of what the world was experiencing or how I did perceived the world those days.
They are part of the '4 Women in Aquelarre' Exhibition, our second edition and I will be sharing the space with the artists: Anna Alcock, Linda Green and Kirsten Schmidt.

Ceramic watercolour dish
I love travelling, it makes me feel relaxed and grounded, in tune with my surroundings. I become appreciative and open and is on these conditions when the ideas flow.
This year I have designed a watercolour dish to share with you. My watercolour ceramic dish is small and resistant enough to travel with you on holiday. To keep it safe the dish comes with a wonderful quilted pouch out of warm and soothing Batik fabrics from our lovely Walthamstow High St. shops.
I was working on Black Ants over a red background from The Amazonia. It was the perfect opportunity to try the watercolour dish even with a wide flat brush and it works very well!
If you are an artist and appreciate well made beautiful and practical objects this will be something you will take for sure on your holidays.
Feature at The Craft Council Diversity Report!
The Craft Council had featured one of my masks to illustrate their Making Changes in Craft Report! Yes, I am proud that my work is used by an organization that supports Craft Makers in UK.
This report is an important study from Dr Karen Patel of Birmingham City University’s Craft Expertise project, in partnership with the Crafts Council, which aims to support greater diversity in craft. All images were sourced from the Crafts Council Directory.
We tried to source a range of makers and different disciplines to highlight the breadth of craft to accompany the report, and your work was one we found visually striking.
