I have lived and worked in Whitstable since coming here as a student in the 1970s – I fell in love with it instantly.

My interest in ceramics grew from a chance job as a Girl Friday at Tabor Pottery in Canterbury with Les Brown, a job which turned into a four year apprenticeship.

From the moment I first learned to use the wheel I was hooked, and over 30 years later, still love to throw pots.

The outlet for my work is ‘Seagulls and Flamingos’ (Address: 12 Harbour St, Whitstable CT5 1AQ). Our shop opened in Whitstable in 1985 as an outlet for locally made ceramics, furniture, glass, and clothes. Nowadays it has expanded to include a wide range of non-local and fair trade goods.

Studio currently at One Belmont Yard, Belmont Road, Whitstable CT5 1QJ but watch this space – we have to move at the end of March! New Location will be Studio 13 up behind Tesco, opening September 2018
