I trained at Kelvin Grove CAE, working full time in my studio as a professional ceramicist from 1984 -1990. I taught at South Bank TAFE from 1990-1996, decreasing my time in the studio.
During those years I entered many competitions and participated in many joint exhibitions and solo shows throughout Qld and NSW. I was active in arts prganisation, serving on the Board of Craft Qld, (1980s) and Fusions (1990s). I was President of both organidations. I worked on Arts Advisory Committees for several TAFE Colleges and worked on a team developing CeramicÂ Curriculum modules.
I moved to Montville 2002, jointly set up Montville Community Arts in 2014 which in 2008 further developed into Arts Connect Inc.Â I was the founding President, continuing to support and mentor incoming presidents (Craft Qld is is now ‘ARTISAN; and FUSIONS now known as Ceramic Arts Qld)
