I am an artist living and working in Durban, South Africa. I have a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from the Durban University of Technology.
I make ceramic sculpture, usually wall pieces in series or multiples and have recently begun working in porcelain.
My work addresses the relationships between comfort and discomfort, interior and exterior, structure and chaos. The forms I use are archetypal and are intended to evoke a sense of subconscious recognition and familiarity.
The images are taken from and influenced by my surroundings, my interaction with everyday objects and my fascination with industrial, architectural and natural forms. I use clay as a material to explore texture, geometry, repetition and pattern found in nature and in the world around us.
I am increasingly aware of the pressure placed on the environment in the name of development and industry. It is an ever-present concern which influences my work.
