I was introduce to clay as a medium some 12 years ago. During the time since then I have had some formal training under various courses and lots of help from other practitioners. I have exhibited in Wellington Potters Assn exhibitions and at South St Gallery in Nelson, the Atrium Gallery in Tinakori Rd, the Lake Rotoiti Art Walk, and Barbers Gallery in Marton

I make various types of work from wheel thrown bowls to hand built creations that have been described as "funky stuff" like the rhinestonesaureus annd hippodotimus in the photo I enjoy creating things from what starts as a block of mud and ends with the suspense of opening a kiln and seeing what the fire and fates have given me.

I hope you enjoy my work.
