I have been working with clay for over 25 years and I am still enjoying the process.
I began my journey with clay through a TAFE certificate course that led to making domestic ware for galleries and gift shops.
I went onto university and completed a Visual Arts Degree followed by Post Graduate studies including a Masters Degree and a Department of Education Diploma. I taught part time at Newcastle University and TAFE in the ceramics departments. I continue to work with TAFE and also work casually in various high schools.
I work in the studio at every opportunity.
Throughout this period I have built on a broad range of skills but tend to return to hand-built sculptures that have a figurative element. The scale of the work ranges from around 15cm to 2 meters in height. The work is mostly earthenware with slips, under-glazes and dry glazed surfaces.
