Some people are lucky to have an awesome life. I am one of them. I was lucky enough to be born in a family of artists, painters, ceramists, potters...lucky to have amazing children, Miriam and Amos, who care for me....lucky to marry Ian Calloway, an over the moon talented painter... lucky to be nurtured and accepted by arts galleries....lucky again to do for living what I love most.
I worked my whole life with human bodies and aimed to reach their absolute excellence. As a sculptor, I express the beauty of human bodies in my pieces of work. Clay and porcelain became an extension of my hands and I enjoy the coldness of them and the transformation of a raw lump of clay into a metaphor of a human body. I use clay as my main medium because of its primal simplicity that contains infinite metaphorical potential. My work attempts to speak of transformation, genesis and decay of human bodies.
I work from home and share a space in Ian's studio called Steyning in Inglewood, New Plymouth.
