Biography

My work is figurative, expressive and narrative and is inspired by stories and themes.

I love watching people, their body language and facial expressions. I am on lookout for a special moments and situations accompanying every human activity. Music, dance, theatre and poetry are my important sources of inspiration.

I use my sketchbooks, my books and my CDs as a valuable collection of raw material. I draw on personal experiences, past and present, with a view to reflect the spontaneity of ordinary humanlife.

I pinch and coil large earthenware vessels and treat them as my canvases. I use slips in very painterly way, building layers of colours with slips, oxides and stains. I am trying to create tension between the outside and inside surface in order to give each piece another dimension.

I make hand built sculptural pieces from clay and porcelain. I design and make hand cut mosaics and tiles. My most recent sculptures are carved from Bath stone and Portland stone.

I draw and paint on paper, using ink, dry pastel and watercolour. I try to combine my artistic skills with my knowledge of human anatomy and soul.
