I work from my home studio in Abbotsford, Victoria, Australia.
This is where I make, draw and think.
I create one off, individual pieces from porcelain.
I shape these into objects for you to use every day, to eat or drink from, to play with or simply ponder.
I use Limoges porcelain for my thrown forms and porcelain paper clay for my hand built shapes. My ideas range from personal thoughts and observations to politics and the world we live in.
I also like to include text in my work, either on the surface of a pot or in the titles. This adds another layer of meaning or maybe another layer of ambiguity, to my work.
Maybe the objects you choose can add to the story of who you are and reflect your dreams and thoughts…..
I began studying ceramics in 1988 and in 2016 I completed my PhD. Throughout that time, surface design, drawing and text have been a strength in my work.
My commitment to making functional objects is because I believe in the role these objects play in our lives, to reflect ourselves, our thoughts and fears, to hold or contain our memories and to remind us that tangible forms can anchor us.
My work is held in several private collections, in Australia and Internationally and some Australian Ceramic collections such as the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. I am represented by Beaver galleries in Canberra.
I have taught throughout Australia from Primary schools to Universities. Workshops and teaching have been a staple to my practice as teaching and sharing is important to me.
