CERAMICS, INSTALLATION, SCULPTURE

I am an illustrator, ceramic artist and sculptor. I work from my beautiful home studio near the tranquil Lake Cooroibah. I grew up in Victoria in a very artistic family and my style is very much influenced by images and experiences from my early years. For many years I have focused on the sustainability of my art practice using recycled/ sustainable materials in the production of my artwork. My kiln is run by solar power and I recycle clay and have my own rain water supply that services the studio. I run regular “Play with clay” workshops at my studio and have appeared at a number of events teaching workshops about sustainable art practice, here on the Sunshine coast. I am a keen conservationist and many of the themes that appear in my artworks reference my love of the planet and mother nature.
