I explore the materiality of clay and the somatic and kinaesthetic experiences that clay evokes.

Through the language of clay, I invite conversations.

Working with clay is also an internal dialogue I have with myself, oscillating between mindfulness and mindlessness in making.

Currently, home is Redfern of Dharug Country and Watson of Ngunnawal Country.

I spend quite a bit of time at the museum of the University of Sydney, deep listen to objects in the collections and explore with visitors the story-keeping place.

I do synchronised breathing exercises with Coro Innominata.   Our next concert in August 2023 will be all thing "Made In Sydney"

I am still waiting for a cat to adopt me.
