I am a potter & clay artist enjoying all facets of clay work. I have a small studio 1km north of Montville Village.
I welcome visitors by appointment to my studio or on my weekend open days. I love answering questions about how my pieces have been made.
Recently I have been making bespoke dinner sets for some of my clients which is a new avenue for me. Would you like something made especially for you?
My arts practice is changing and evolving with new environmental directions and passions. I find myself comfortable expressing these through different mediums, varying from an eco dye pot, brush to an etching press, or speaking out through my community filmmaking. So much to say and so much to learn, I feel I will be creating to my last breath.
My newest venture is along the Healing Arts path. Reversible wearable art coats and clothing infused with Australian Bush Essence for healing. Life is never dull on the creative path.
My art and design works are photographic images which I choose to use either traditionally or to form the basis of contemporary and composite pieces. I love the sense of being able to construct pieces to my own design as a painter may do, but also work with the more formal photographic works as produced 'in camera'
All my works are available for sale printed on either canvas, specialist photo paper or fabric and can be printed to a range of required sizes.
Artist. Printmaker. Designer.
With a love for printmaking, following a career in graphic design, I love to share my skills and explore all printmaking media.
Printmaking gives me a space of calming respite from a culture of haste and automation. I love combining the meditative craft of relief and intaglio printing with capturing the slower pace of life in the natural world as the subject of my work. In my experiences of nature and its translation through the act of printmaking, I am reminded to be still and present in daily life.
I am the wife of a contemporary war veteran and my printing practice gives me respite from the sometimes chaotic world of the PTSD that we both live with and manage. I use my work as a way to share with and remind others of the calming effects of the sometimes quirky moments the natural world can bring to their own busy lives.
For me the animal kingdom is the driving force behind my art as I love to delve into the diversity of animal life. My intention is to capture my subject’s character and expression, incorporating their humour, their majesty and wonder, and as a result, the painting then tells its own story.
