  • Ceramics Coach - History & Mission

    learning, loving, sharing, growing

    • After 25 years in the field of international curating & academia, this is my way of giving back to my tribe of clay-loving artists.
    • It's my chance to share the wisdom & support I have received from artists, curators, academics & gallerists who have nurtured me along this incredible life journey across 4 continents, from my homeland, South Africa.
    • I am immensely grateful to have lived & worked in Europe (the Netherlands, Spain, France & Belgium), the UK, Asia (China, Taiwan, India), Australia, South Africa, the Middle East & the USA.
