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.

currently starting new work for an exhibition at roma regional gallery in february 2015 ifonly is the first completed piece – hand built terracotta, slip, underglaze, stain encaustic (wax) finish approx. 50xm x 30 cm x 30 cm
This figure was one of the first large sculptural pieces that I completed 12 months ago.Unresolved it stood in the corner of the studio abandoned while I struggled to get a more thematic group of works together for my solo exhibition last april.

I have spent the afternoon cleaning and waxing the vintage sewing machine drawers for my caryatids – I have 10 sculptures completed and I am hoping to place them all in the gallery along one wall on a perspex shelf at eye level.
