I was a beach kid of the 60s and my drawing has been influenced by the bright lively colours and “fun” lifestyle. Thrown functional clay pieces become my canvas, clay and brush my tools of trade. From a trip to France I observed the “cool style” of the French women and developed the “funky lady” decorated ware. Much overseas travel and a lasting interest in Japanese culture and brush painting filter into my very Australian themes. I design, make, photograph and teach in today’s Arts Industry.
Currently I sell from my “Burra North Studio”, “Artworx” in Goolwa, “Urban Cow Studio” in Adelaide, “Venturas Vision” Auburn, and “Studio Potters”, Klemzig. Recent commissions for “Southern Ocean Lodge” Kangaroo island, Burra Hotel and Pike’s Winery demand unique designs, and one-off pieces for exhibition work throughout each year are the challenges I most enjoy. I am stimulated by the creative challenge and hope people enjoy using my pots.
