I am very excited to announce the beginning of my studio residency at Shakespeare Grove Artist Studios in St Kilda, Melbourne. This new residency will allow me the valuable opportunity to work alongside a number of other visual artists in the complex, and to continue to develop my sculptural practice.
A big thank you to the City of Port Phillip, who is generously supporting my time here.

I am extremely happy to be a finalist in the 30th Gold Coast International Ceramic Art Award. The inaugural Gold Coast Ceramic Art Award, which was held in 1982, was developed to encourage the creation and appreciation of art in clay. It is now a biennial award that attracts a diverse range of high-quality entries, allowing audiences to become acquainted with contemporary ceramic art practices from around the world.
All finalist’s work for the 30th GCICAA will be on exhibition at Gallery 1 at the Gold Coast City Gallery, Surfers Paradise, Australia between 27 August – 23 October 2016.
I am currently undertaking a three-month artist’s residency at the internationally renowned European Ceramic Work Centre (EKWC) in Oisterwijk, The Netherlands, after receiving a generous Sundaymorning@ekwc grant issued by the centre in 2015. The objective of my residency, which began in December 2015, is to conduct exploratory ceramic research, acquire advanced technical skills, and to deepen my artistic practice.
EKWC is an international workplace where 45 artists are selected annually to come to the centre to explore the technical and artistic possibilities of ceramics. Its aim is to promote the development of ceramic art, design and architecture.
Ghost Boxes is my first solo exhibition and will feature a selection of intricate, three-dimensional paintings from my most recent series.
The works will be displayed in numerous showcases in the entrance area of the City Library, 253 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, located in the CAE building near the corner of Degraves Street and Flinders Lane between 2– 30 July 2015.
