About the artist

 

I studied Geography at Reading University before taking a PGCE course in secondary education then taught for 8 years.  I opted to leave teaching on the birth of my first child but, after a few years of being at home to “grow” the children, I found myself wanting to learn a new skill outside of the home environment.  After meeting a lovely South African lady who had survived an horrific attack on her life and had used art as a way of healing the memories, I was inspired to search for some way to express myself and my faith in a creative way.  So,  I took myself down to the local Adult Education Centre and enrolled on a pottery evening class course.  In the learning process I made many mistakes and misshapen pots and was much frustrated in not being able to produce something I found really attractive.  Then one day I hit the jackpot, so to speak, and, by accident, produced something I found really liked. Wonky Pots was born!
