  • Description

    Description

    I am a ceramicist and teacher living in a small warehouse residence in inner city Sydney. I have an art studio here in the warehouse. I am working on a number of creative projects including gardening, painting, small upgrades to the building and living space. I live in a welcoming and friendly neighbourhood in a quiet laneway. There are cafes restaurants, cycle paths and open spaces close by and I am five minutes walking distance to a railway station - about 4km from Central Sydney.

    My home and studio comprise an upcycled warehouse space with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The focus here is on low environmental impact and the building is run on solar panels and solar hot water. I am a vegetarian.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a working artist with a passion for all forms of cultural practice including visual art, architecture, film, music and cultural practice. I have an excellent knowledge of great locations to visit in Sydney and surrounds and also more broadly in all Australian States. I am very interested in the natural environment and environmental preservation.
