Born in the UK in 1978, after finishing school I went to Buckinghamshire Chilterns University to study for my BA (Hons) Ceramics and Glass. I qualified as a practising wheel thrown ceramist. I set up my own business and made my own wares for 6 years before heading back to university to study a PGCE in secondary education. I have been teaching in both the UK and Australia for over 15 years. I have 2 children of my own and currently work part time for a school in Anglican Schools commission.
