Artist

Expressing myself through through the making of objects is a privilege and a passion. The human figure has long been a feature in much of my work. Through figurative imagery my wheel and hand-built work explores the relationships between people. It is a conversation, fueled by friendships and travels, a visual diary narrated with an evolving personal vocabulary of images. I have employed different techniques, clay bodies and surface treatments. Recently I have experimented with wheel-throwing different forms in a series, with and without figurative imagery. I have found that altering and sculpting into these thrown vessels significantly affects the interpretation of my work.
I believe that many people today are searching through figurative images for spiritual guidance. Some ancient people thought that icons were alive and had spiritual powers. My own work is inspired by these beliefs and images.
