"I like to illustrate through “clay etchings” and little clay sprigs on the form a world in which small acts of everyday life reveals itself in fine detail. The imagery leads the viewer around the form to investigate with both hand and eye. My passion extends to the outdoors of South Africa bush veld where I find much of my inspiration."A qualified 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 and am blessed to receive numerous awards.
