I am constantly in awe of this ancient land, a land we are so privileged to live upon.
My ceramics and sculptural work is very much influenced by the amazingly diverse landscapes of North Queensland, the colours, textures, and the natural rugged formations that frequently frame the most delicate of grasses.
I am constantly in awe of this ancient land, a land we are so privileged to live upon. A land so vast that many think its resources infinite - and the unceasingly brave battle by those who know they are not.
My most recent solo exhibition (2020) entitled Liminal Space explored issues of extinction and de-extinction while questioning those political decisions that place our environment in jeopardy.
Previous bodies of work have addressed issues surrounding the mining of uranium, the plight of refugees and the commonality of our human relationship with place.
Initially a ceramicist, I now work with a variety of mediums including ceramic, glass, stone, steel, found objects and plant materials, basically, whichever medium’s aesthetic best suits the concept I’m addressing at the time.
My studio is located in Nelly Bay, on Magnetic Island in North Queensland.
