Tricia originally studied ceramics at Gray's School of Art then worked in the ceramics industry, making and decorating pots in a production pottery. She later went on to train as a teacher and taught art and ceramics in schools and colleges while at the same time, making her own range of ceramics.

Returning to making after some years' absence, Tricia's latest work pulls together her love of the process and the activity of making. It is an expression of her journeys through landscapes and time; the discovery of the connection between intuition and creativity; and a desire to integrate the elements of form and surface.
