Artist Statement

Making masks is a highly enjoyable activity; getting to grips with a large lump of clay and watching a character emerge, then using it as a mould on which to create a wearable mask!

I make masks and puppets in a wide range of styles, sizes and materials;  each one is unique and many are commissioned by schools, colleges, theatre companies and private individuals.  I also facilitate mask and puppet making and performance projects with primary and secondary schools and community groups.

Lockdown has also led to a rekindling of my interest in painting and drawing; walking in countryside has inspired a series of observational pieces in pen and ink and watercolour.
