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. PrjctOMNi has just posted an interview with me if you are interested in what I have been up to head over to http://PrjctOMNi.com and go to the social pages. This is a new online arts magazine and worth […]
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
the final five chameleonrecruits are finished – all hand-built terracotta, slip, underglaze, stained and waxed – with some applied mixed media elements – size variable 30 – 70 cm in height.
I am currently working on six new chameleonrecruits from the sirens saints and sinners series hopefully to get exhibited as a one group.

Nearly 2 months since I have posted something – we have been very busy helping our eldest twin prepare for her latest adventure – 12 months volunteering in North Yorkshire UK. Apparently it started to snow yesterday – her first experience of the white, wet stuff !!! I have not entirely neglected the studio and this morning 3 new ceramic sculptures went into the kiln. Sneak peak of one of them before firing …these are still from the sirens, satyrs, […]
Great run yesterday down to the Gold Coast around 5 hours return journey. gravitas lost is a mixture of terracotta and white clay bodies, colour is stains, and engobe – once fired to 1100. 50 x 25 x 25 cm
Two more completed pieces a counterfeit obsession and falling from grace both pieces are ceramic sculpture, engobe, stains and underglaze in vintage sewing machine drawers.
