I began working with ceramics whilst still at school and developed my skills during my Art Foundation (Diploma at Central Saint Martin’s School of Art and Design, London).
I went on to complete a B.A. Fine Arts in 2001. I specialized in sculpture and my final exhibition work combined unglazed black and white clay with wood.
I currently specialize in creating functional sculptures. A variety of natural forms inspire my work. I create organic asymmetrical shapes that remain associative, yet are entirely original. My work stems from a diversity of influences, ranging from human anatomy to microscopic underwater creatures.
My work explores these biological forms using white earthenware clay. I prefer to keep the simplicity of colour so as to keep the focus on the shapes. My artworks are unusual and unique pieces of art.
My work can be found in shops and galleries in Cape Town, as well as at Ceramics exhibitions and markets. The Potters Market is held in March and November each year at Rondebosch Park off Campground road.
