Influence 
I was born and raised in inner city Bristol, the child of first generation Jamaican immigrants.  As a teenager, the race riots in my neighbourhood, St Pauls, in the early 1980s made a lasting impression on me.  My curiosity about the government's attempts to fix things ultimately led to me pursuing a 30 year career in local area regeneration.

These experiences are reflected in my art, where I explore the complex issues surrounding inner city areas and communities.

I often  gather my ideas by observing scenes and people in my neighbourhood.  I create ceramic art that is provocative, subversive, playful and humorous.  I want to test interpretations of the present day, whilst producing tangible objects that contain a certain beauty and references a past.
I bring my musical skills to create soundscapes to accompany my ceramic installations. These inspire and enhance my conceptual development and my making. 

Process 
I use the full palette of ceramic techniques to make my pieces, emphasising surface decoration with mono-print slip transfers, digital decals and in some cases metallic lustres.  I also experiment with the addition of non-ceramic materials.
