Hello – I have been absent from this site for a very long time – life takes over and I have moved to Instagram for more regular posting. I do maintain my website here and update the images but no regular postings.
And if you would like to keep up to date with me – my Instagram account is
This is the third large drawing in the series for Roma Regional Gallery – I have many progress shots which I may post later – image below a composite of the three drawings together.

I haven’t been very good at keeping up-to-date on my blog but i have been plugging away in the studio. Over the next few days I will post some of the results below are two figures ready for the Roma regional Gallery exhibition.

I thought I had three images to upload of this drawing in three different stages but I could only find the first and third this morning – obviously in haste I have closed photoshop before saving the image 😦
Never mind below are two stages of the drawing (still in progress) charcoal, white and black gesso and mono print
Currently working towards completing a series of large drawings to be exhibited with sculptures at
Roma Regional Gallery. Having cleared a little space in the studio by packing up the sculptures going to
Gold Coast International Ceramic Award I could hang the first piece of paper to be worked on.
Size approx. 1.5 metres h x 1.2 metres w – stage one charcoal, gesso, watercolour and china graph
What I really want to do is get a few of these up on the wall before attempting to finish – so that they are all playing into each other.
when this vessel went into the fire I was less than happy with the form – but now that she has been spruced up a bit – a brightening with some acrylic paint, some papermache added to her headpiece and the final sealing of sections with encaustic … she started to speak to me handbuilt terracotta – slip, underglaze, stained, acrylic, papermache and encustic

Had a pretty good week this week – some of the work fired will be useable for exhibiting next year (that is a plus) a kiln full of rubbish might be a bit disheartening; and I managed to complete several pages in a small sketchbook for the ‘the sketchbook project’ that will be exhibited here in australia before heading off overseas to join the touring group.
The other good news is that I have had my ‘chameleon recruits’ selected for the gold coast international ceramic award in september – this is fantastic !!!
