Artists Statement

Artists Statement

With more than 20 years experience of professional ceramic practice, I have employed many techniques with my current work using porcelain, mostly wheelthrown and featuring soluble salts and decals.

Often my work is driven by the materials and processes. Also, textures and patterns in nature influence my work often drawn from my love of gardening and the tropical environment in which I live.

I make work for group and solo exhibitions and for retail with occasional workshop teaching. In 2003, I completed a Diploma of Art (ceramics) at the Australian National University. I have won several awards for my work including the Townsville National Ceramic Award, a merit in the Gold Coast International Ceramic Competition and an Honourable Mention in the 3rd International Ceramic Competition in Korea
