I opened my studio in 2013 when I discovered clay, fell in love with it, saw a new potential, and decided to pursue a dream (or bring my manifesto to life). This project would allow me to combine my passion for art making and my desire for social change, however small. I wanted art making to be useful to those who need it most.
I’ve worked with those with Alzheimers and dementia, residents at a home, Livewell since 2013, four times a week. I have many special needs children, adults, schools, organisations with all kinds of physical and psychological challenges. We have classes for the children from Patch Helderberg, a centre for sexually abused children and Tereo Community School, accompanied by therapists. When circumstance allows, I give classes at Bizweni School for Disabled.
