About

I am an artist/maker using clay to make objects and site-specific installations. Techniques include slip-casting, press moulding, hand-building, sand blasting, smoke-firing – for me, the individual idea determines my approach. This conscious decision-making allows me to craft thought-provoking work informed by each site-specific context.  I bring my background in anthropology, material culture and museums to the mix as well, and feel strongly that the idea and the material are equally important.
