“Being the daughter of practicing artists, my father is a painter and my mother a print-maker I have been exposed to the art world from an early age and was always encouraged to produce my own work. Having grown up in the British countryside my work seldom wanders far from nature’s bounty and, although trained as a ceramic artist, I enjoy working with a variety of materials including steel, copper, fibres, silks, plaster and clay and often incorporate items from nature’s debris – twigs, feathers, quills."
Having completed her ceramics training at Central School or Art and Design in London, Serena set up a studio and had regular opportunities to exhibit.
In 1985 she moved to Sydney and worked with The Crafts Council, taught ceramics to children as well as establishing her own successful studio at Bondi Beach. She has had pieces in numerous exhibitions in Sydney and NSW including Sculpture by the Sea, Darling Harbour and the Sydney Art Gallery, and is represented in the collection of the National Gallery of Australia.
Serena lives in Bondi Beach with her husband and 3 children.
