Porcelain paper clay is the vehicle that has driven my artistic practice.  I use clay as the predominant material to create sculptural works that are shaped by my thoughts, culture and surrounding landscapes.  I am constantly intrigued by clays ability to respond to the human touch and have spent time testing this material to understand its abilities and limitations, meanwhile placing a focus on its elegance and fragility.
