I have lived and worked in England, Taiwan, Pakistan, France, and Mexico but France and Spain(a substitute for Mexico) are my favourites! Chambon provides a quiet and friendly hamlet in which I can work and relax. I have converted a local barn into a studio in which I make ceramic sculptures, vessels and bowls. I am very lucky to be surrounded by such beautiful countryside with delicious wine, cheese and French bread only minutes away! My apartment in Spain provides me with a winter retreat and time to recharge my batteries. Set in beautiful Andalucia and so close to Picasso's birth place, it's beauty, vibrancy, music, colours and tapas are truly inspirational.
