Born and raised in Southern Africa, Pippa qualified as a goldsmith and went on to work for the artist-jeweller Wendy Ramshaw in London for over ten years. A major career change followed her decision to study for a degree in Zoology, leading to a move to Jersey to work with the gorillas at Durrell for many years.
A period of ill health brought about another change in direction, and In 2010 Pippa opened her studio on the Old French Harbour, combining her making skills with her love of natural forms and textures.
Creating work both to commission and to her own design in a variety of materials, she has recently been working on an open ended series of hand-built ceramic figures incorporating animal and insect based forms with elements drawn from African and Japanese pottery, ancient vessels, vintage toys, and her love of animation.
