I have worked in the Creative Industries for 30 years. My experience includes ceramics, t-shirt design, painting, drawing and theatre set design. I have spent the last 11 years working in Arts Administration and Teaching at NC TAFE. I also get involved in community and school based projects. In the past these have included: Coastal Claymakers, Toormina and Sawtell Public Schools, Coffs Harbour Girl Guides, CHATS, Seacrest Productions and The Japanese Festival.
I have a home based studio where I create a variety of artworks. Presently my current passion is in ceramics, both sculptural and functional. I am inspired by Australian flora and fauna, depicting its intricate designs and beauty in my work. I aim to raise awareness and appreciation of our natural environment and the important role we must play in sustaining it.
I have exhibited my work in the Coffs Harbour Area for 20 years and enjoy being a part of these events. This year I have exhibited at Bellingen Framers with Coastal Claymakers in their annual exhibition, been in the group ‘Vessels’ show at First Avenue Gallery- Sawtell and will be a part of the ‘Little Tern Project’ at Sawtell Art Gallery.
