I began my pottery career in 1987 studying Ceramics in Dun Laoghaire College of Art and Design. Following this I combined my love for Ceramics and travel working in 10 Potteries in Ireland, Canada and Scotland, learning and honing my skills as a Potter and Ceramic Artist. In 1996 I started my own studio at Benbulben Pottery in Rathcormac, County Sligo where I have continued to work full time until 2008 and part-time since then.
