I make ceramic sculptures inspired by nature, fairy tales, myth and other stories. I was fascinated by metamorphoses in Greek myth, and love the world of Narnia.

My work will bring smile to those who see them. That makes me happy.

I have a postgraduate certificate in Applied and Fine Arts in Canterbury Christ Church University in 2013. I have studied Sociology (BA) and Social Anthropology (MA), and interior design at a professional level. I used to work as interior designer in Tokyo.

My most favourite places to visit are the British Museum and V&A, and the place I have liked to visit most is Hermitage at St. Petersburg.

I live with the husband, three parrots, two dogs and one chicken in a beautiful old city in Kent.

I love life, feel optimistic and lucky. I am sometimes too imaginative for my social reputation!
