In my ceramics, whether it be my sculptural work, or my functional ware, I strive to create an
understanding of the ancestral threads that still run through our modern lives.
Childhood memories of hours spent laying by water, reading endless books about childhood
adventures, inform a genuine love of character, and passion for story telling through the medium of
The strong, silent and intuitive characters I create, connect with the observer through the repeated
theme of ‘Eyes as the window of the Soul’, intense and all knowing in their gaze. They are also
often clothed in the form of wool jumpers as a symbol of familial care and love, reflecting on my
childhood as the daughter of an avid knitter and knitwear designer.
My last year has seen the creation of my first large scale public artwork, a 3-meter-tall figure called
‘The Postmaster General’ This was created using stoneware ceramics, steel and grout, for the
purpose of creating substrate for an artificial reef. He is installed 8 meters underwater as part of the
Busselton Jetty Dive and sculpture trail. After only 6 months, The Postmaster has been inhabited
by all types of marine creatures, from cuttlefish and octopi, to ascidians and soft corals. I truly feel
that this particular artwork has seen me grow not only as an artist, but as a human with the ability
to impact the environment in an extremely positive way, whilst engaging others to do the same.
