Introduction I am a ceramic artist and I work out of my studio at the base of Mt Dandenong- Melbourne , Victoria- Australia. My training in Ceramics began in 1980 when I majored in Ceramics at Prahran College- Diploma of Art & Design. I then went on to work for Jan Lewis at Table Top Ceramics as a studio assistant. Throughout my thirty year career I have taught ceramics and mosaics to adults and children in a range of community settings. I have participated in several successful group and individual exhibitions. My work is predominantly wheel thrown , functional ware. I generally work in mid fire and porcelain. It is highly decorative and whimsical in design. The bird series 'motif ' has evolved over many years and changes slightly with each new body of work. I cannot resist entirely covering the surface of my work with sgrafitto and underglaze brushwork.
