  • Artist Statement

    After training in design and working as an advertising, corporate then editorial writer, I started playing with clay. I found in this most basic medium a fascination for three-dimensionality and unlimited potential for expression, and went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts with First Class Honours in 2006 and a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2010, both at Sydney College of the Arts. Initially my interests focused on formal values such as curvature, volume, asymmetry and fluidity of line but over time the meaning that could be invested in form became paramount and I now try to create forms based on ideas and experiences that prompt thought and generate emotional connections.

    The works shown here were part of an installation created for my masters degree, entitled Show of Care.
