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, mirroring the rustic elegance of the Australian bush.

My love of Australian birds and wildlife is a theme present in all of my sculptures. I hope my art

will inspire respect for these beautiful animals and their habitat protection.



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, from mixed media painting to collage and floristry, before I stumbled on the local Potters Society. And in that very first meeting with clay, a soul connection was ignited. 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. Today, I am an awarded artist and a teacher in my Central Coast studio where I host ceramics workshops.
