Mark of the Artist

I am delighted to announce I will be kicking off the first ‘Mark of the Artist’ 2014 event at Noosa Regional Gallery.

Following on from my recent solo exhibition, Expressions of Love II  I'll share insights into my ceramic arts practice and how I go about creating the Southern Ice porcelain component to accommodate my recycled tea bags works, as seen in the image below.

Please accept this warm invitation to join me for morning tea, on Friday 11 April, 2014 between 10.30am and 11.30am – Riverside, Pelican St, Tewantin – gold coin donation – RSVP 8 April Email :

Open studio + artworks showcased for purchase

Last weekend I participated in the Sunday Drive Open Studios - in partnership with Caloundra Regional Gallery's Sunday Drive Exhibition, Arts Connect Inc presented 11 Artists' Open Studios in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.  In addition, Sunshine Coast Council hosted a VIP bus tour to visit four selected artists' studios, a small hinterland gallery, a long term established commercial gallery and a pop-up gallery.  I was fortunate to receive a visit and was delighted to host an alfresco morning tea for refreshments.

Stunning weather created an ambience for the day, VIP's enjoying morning tea and studio viewing...

As artists we are constantly faced with gallery closures which always present us with an array of challenges - creating a sustainable income for one! Hosting an open studio with the wider community is a great way to share an insight into one's work and space, it also helps with generating potential sales and the prospect of future opportunities and then there's always the added bonus thrown into the mix of the shared experience and an appreciation for one's work, highly valued on my list and keeps me all inspired! 

One question I am often asked when people come and visit is, where can one purchase my artworks?   A selection of my ceramics and/or assemblage work are currently showcased in the following outlets:
