I’m a Central Coast sculptor ceramicist expressing my life and soul connection with the land through earth-inspired forms.
I use natural elements found in the local bushland and coastline to create ceramics that evoke the oneness of land, people and our environment. That is what matters most – the bonds we have with each other, entwined with our deep-rooted connection with nature.
You can find some surprising markings and finishes in my work, created by using materials like pods, sticks, seeds and wire. I intuitively use them to extend the still form and echo the movement and energy I see in nature and inspire the organic forms, colourful and dynamic surfaces of my work mirroring the rustic elegance of the Australian bush…
From the moment my hands first held clay, I haven’t stopped making, experimenting, learning, discovering and testing. I love the diversity of clay and the possibilities it offers. The excitement of how the clay responds to my touch and the movement I can obtain from it are magnetic for me.
My evolution as a ceramic artist is a journey illustrated by creativity. I’ve always crafted with my hands. Over the next five years, I studied my statement of attainment, diploma and advanced diploma in Visual Arts at TAFE, always sculpting, shaping and sharing my wonder at nature’s beauty in each piece I make.
