With a career in graphic design, I returned to college to complete a first class honours degree in Ceramic Design in LSAD. I have a particular interest in surface illustration of narrative on ceramics and I use my graphic skills to create unique ceramic wall installations.
My work is conceptual, referencing classical form and figure and I use contemporary elements like tattoos to create a narrative. The female form in historical works of art are lifted from the past and subverted with tattoos to address issues such as feminism. With humour, I alter how women have been historically portrayed and given a more assertive demeanour.
My artwork evokes emotions that have been drawn from my own life experience. The illustrations, both whimsical and nostalgic translate easily from 2D to 3D in clay and other materials. Slip cast porcelain forms, fine bone china and textiles are my canvas.
