Artist Statement

Over 60years of involvement with horses has provided an innate knowledge of nearly all things equine. I commenced a studio practice on a rural property in northern NSW in 2010. Here, I build solely in clay, making equine sculptures that have layers of meaning embedded in their surfaces.
My sculptures are strongly influenced by the connection women have with horses. Taking history as a starting point, I develop forms that reflect ideas of power, control, and cultural exchange
Using found and commercial clay bodies I hand build these forms with various surface treatments to develop a story. Symbolic decorative elements created with brushwork, colour, form and glaze are fused in various firing processes. This develops my individual pieces expressing relationships where fragility and strength are negotiated between material and subject matter creating a visual narrative.
I enjoy giving them a title which can provide clues to the origin of the idea behind each particular piece.
