My work is about integrating my love of form and drawing! I illustrate my work using “clay etchings’ and sprigs on the form, creating a world in which small acts of everyday life are revealed in fine detail!
A teacher by trait, my love for ceramics started at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg (USA) where my husband furthered his studies. I completed my B -Tech in Ceramics in 1998 at the Vaal triangle Technikon, where I received numerous awards. After lecturing for two years at that institution, we moved to Botswana where I pursued career as art teacher at the Cambridge Secondary School in Gaborone Botswana for seven years.
Back in South Africa, I am currently a fulltime ceramic artist with my own studio and have started participating in exhibitions. I also completed the “Mentorship Programme” with John Shirley that helped me in my on-going maturation as a ceramic artist. In 2011 I received a Highly Commended award at the Ultra-Furn Exhibition at the University of Pretoria! My new work explores porcelain and its endless yet daunting possibilities.
