Education

My education is deep and wide. I hold a Masters of Applied Science (Critical Perspectives of Psychological Practice) UWS,
2 Diplomas in Psychotherapy and Counselling, and one in Clinical Hypnotherapy.
I also hold a Certificate of Professional Practice In Buddhist Psychotherapy.

I spent three years at TAFE studying Fine art and Ceramics (2004 - 2007), though my artistic learning style does better in the freer environment of workshops and short courses.
I have been a member of the Workshop Art Centre in Willoughby since 2002, and have attended regular classes and workshops there with regular and visiting artists. The late Kerrie Lester was an important mentor for several years. Her little dog Chilli is now my studio assistant.

I am currently enrolled in the Open Studio Program at Brookvale TAFE Ceramics Department under the guidance of Chris James and all the other wonderful peer potters. Prior to this I studied ceramics at Willoughby for five years with Kwirak Choung and Natalie Velthuyzen.

I attend workshops at the National Art School for both painting and ceramics whenever possible (Kerrie Lester, Andrew Antoniou, Maryanne Wick, Cameron Williams).
