Artist Bio

I work with many different clay bodies developing work in my studio in the hills behind Ballina. I graduated from Southern Cross University, B.V.A. as a mature age student in 2008 after completion of a three year Di0ploma of Ceramics at Northern Rivers TAFE in 2003. Taking history as a starting point I focus on women horses and power in my ceramic practice negotiating strengths and fragility of both material and subject.
I have participated in self-funded and invitation Residencies in Jingdezhen, South Korea, Japan and Yunnan, and have been a finalist in several awards winning the Student Prize of Thursday Plantation Sculpture Walk, the 3D section of The Winton Outback Art Prize and sharing the Byron Classic Acquisitive Art Award as well as selling work at International Art Fairs and at various solo and groups exhibitions. My ceramic work is held in collections in Australia, China, Japan, South Korea, Yunnan, Malaysia, Europe and New York.

I love making sculptural and functional ceramics inspired by a life-times experience with horses and love of ancient ceramic forms and culture. I develop my own glazes, explore local materials and use various decorative elements, surface treatments and firing processes to express my ideas.
