About the artist

Carey studied art at Leeds Polytechnic (1975 -78) and Illustration at Croydon College. She gained an Art Teacher’s Certificate (PGCE) at Goldsmiths and has taught art and ceramics over many years to children and adults.


Between 2004 and 2014, Carey worked at Torquil Pottery and The Gallery Upstairs, latterly running the business with the help of her brother, Paul and his partner, Andrea. This was a popular centre in the Midlands for art and craft selling the work of many well known contemporary artists and makers. It was founded in 1960 by her father, Reg Moon . As well as producing her own work, Carey curated group exhibitions for 40 – 50 artists twice a year, ran the shop and taught regular workshops in the pottery. Now, she is taking a breathing space – and experimenting with some new work…
