I set up my first studio in Sunbury, Victoria in 1978. I had 9 solo exhibitions between 1978 and 1996 before having a break for several years. I taught art in secondary schools on and off and painted a few canvases while working in other fields not related to ceramics. I recently opened a new studio in Gordon, Victoria and I am making mainly wheel thrown stoneware and porcelain. During the 1980's I was a seniour lecturer in ceramic design at CIT for 6 years and was president of the Victorian Ceramic Group for a couple of years.
