Biography

My work is figurative, narrative and expressive.

I work both in stone, clay and on paper.
I carve sculptures from Bath stone and Portland stone
I make large hand built clay vessels and sculptures.
They are freely painted with coloured slips, stains and oxides.
I draw in ink, dry pastel and charcoal and love using watercolour and tempera.

In this complicated world I draw on personal experiences, past and present
with a view to reflect the spontaneity of ordinary human life

Born in Prague.
I studied medicine and worked as an anatomist.
In 1985 I moved to Britain.
I studied ceramics at Croydon College of Art and Design.
Set up my studio in London with the help of a Crafts Council Setting Up Grant.
