I’ve felt very fortunate growing up in such a beautiful part of the world, Mt Eliza on the Mornington peninsula! When completing my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Ceramic Design at Caulfield Monash University, I’ve enjoyed exhibiting work in various shows, local galleries, interstate & in China , also receiving numerous awards along the way. I’ve also loved sharing my knowledge of clay to all ages, for over 30 years.

Raku, the very raw & earthy ancient Japanese firing process, is what has intrigued me the most. It offers all the excitement a potter could ever need!

Experiencing the wonderfully rich tones & spontaneous glaze results is like dancing through an adventure playground, constantly being drawn down the many paths still yet to explore. Each one-off piece presents movement and its own unique personality.

Clay has always been the core medium for travelling in my creative journey… It is my soul-food.
