I have been making art for about thirty years. I completed‚ with honors‚ a ceramic course and have had a passion for raku‚ saggar and sawdust fired pottery ever since. I am also a painter‚ creating abstract landscapes and abstracts on linen‚ canvas and wood. I delight in experimenting with different mediums and textures. The work consists of many layers of paint‚ creating a history to each work. My work has sold all over Australia and overseas.

I seek to explore the beauty and the stillness of the landscape‚ it harshness‚ its fragility. I like to be able to walk into my landscapes‚ follow all the tracks and roads‚ rocks and trees and hide in the shadows.
