Welcome! My studio is Fig Tree studio, overlooking the bush covered hills of Belmont, in Lower Hutt, Wellington. I work surrounded by beautiful birdsong or watching the weather dance across the hills. I source inspiration from the nature that surrounds me. I have a degree in ceramics, and a post graduate certificate in education. Since moving to New Zealand in 2002 I have sold work internationally and throughout New Zealand, won awards and been featured in various publications. From 2008 – 2011 I was tutor and then co-ordinator for the Otago Diploma of Ceramic Arts distance learning programme. I now run my own studio in Wellington, where, as well as creating my own work, I run classes for adults and children.
