My artwork takes inspiration from an array of things, often drawing back on experiences and emotions, as well as nature, found textures and patterns. I work with various techniques, such as photography, drawing, printing and ceramics; these are often combined to create artworks. Most of my work draws back on experiences within my life, creating a metaphorical expression of these observations. My working processes incorporate research and testing, to explore ways of mimicking aspects of the subject matter. The joyful exploration through making contains surprise elements, starting with a material, which when manipulated becomes something extraordinary and beautiful. Within my ceramic work the constant transformations through making/firing is adding an additional aspect of excitement.

Other Interests

I take great pleasure in most creative activities, such as drawing, painting, ceramics, print making, and sculpture. I love travelling, and in the last twenty years have visited places in Africa, South East Asia, Europe, America and Australasia. This experience has broadened my perception and appreciation of cultural diversity. I enjoy further studies/research through art exhibitions, workshops and seminars.
