Interests and Personality

BiographyThe influence of the landscape has inspired my study of the effect of memory on the emotional experience of seeing. My Pieces with their layers of clays, slip cast materials, oxides and lustres are meant to trace visual memory devoid of or refusing mimetic form, hovering on the brink of recognition. The passage of time features strongly within my pieces; marks, images and surface conditions come and go, leaving fragments of visual experience behind. The remaining fragments evoke meaning, sensory experiences that have been transformed by time, situation, and consequent memories. Memory is always in a constant state of change, complex and fragile, possessing an ethereal quality. My Ceramic work is for that reason rooted in the exploration of how memory, in this case visual memory, is built upon a sense of impermanence and change. As an observer, one is left to consider a combination of possibilities, possibilities created in part by one's own past, thoughts and memories.

Hi, great to hear from you. I was just visiting your site earlier in the week. So, how have you been doing in your classes. It's great that you are almost finished. Did you post anything new today?


Hello, Merry Christmas and a wonderful happy new year! Kind Regards, Simon.


Very interesting! I love Hidden Messages


Some really cool work. My son lives in Carmarthen - do you exhibit in the area? If so will view you next visit. Margaret

Hi! Listen, I have about 6 months to prepare for my first solo show, and I was hoping you could assist me. I will need to have at least 30 paintings to display. If you could, with as much honesty as possible, please name 2 of my completed pieces that you feel I should definitely show. Also, please share 3 things with me, based on my current work, (remember be honest), that you would recommend to me for improving my art in general. I am fine if you post this on my public board because it may be interesting to others. The feedback from other artist on this website is very valuable to me. Thanks! ~Marianne

I am doing well. I did make a little clay something... hmmm... it was going to be a pendant but after making the design I ran out of room to put a whole. :) It is about the size of a quarter (if you know what size that is). I just etched a design in the clay, then painted it. It was such a small project but was a little more difficult than I expected. I'll keep trying though. :) Have fun during this last year of study. I look forward to seeing your new pieces.
