“Creating art is often a journey of self-discovery. I tend to make intuitively with the subtle meaning behind my work unfolding over time. My earlier works has included the investigation of women of influence through the creation of hand impressed porcelain vases based on my grandmother’s heritage and culture in Finland. My latest series of work, is reminiscent of mossy, lichen covered rocks and trees found here in Australia and my childhood home, Finland. I enjoy the challenge of working with porcelain and it’s translucency.”
