More About Me

I have been creating artworks all of my life and have worked with a range of mediums. When I was a young adult drawing was my passion until I discovered clay. Since my discovery of clay the main focus of my work has been free hand pottery sculpture, particularly creating people’s pets with clay.

I am passionate about sharing my art skills and knowledge with others so became and visual arts teacher and have been teaching children and young adults to create artworks using different art mediums and styles for the past 10 years. For the past year I have been hosting adult and children pottery workshops at my pottery studio located on my property in rural Yandina.

Recently I have taken on the role of arts curator at the Yandina Historic House Arts Gallery. I love that I am able to meet and work with other artists and that I am helping to promote and share the artwork of our talented local artists with the wider community.
