Artist - Debra Powell
In 1989, I got my first proper job, as a painter of fine china figurines – I’ve been mucking about with clay and paint ever since. Several years later I studied for a diploma in craft and design (majoring in ceramics). I worked with potting ‘royalty’ such as Moira Elliot, Peter Lange and Raewyn Atkinson. Of course I was too young and naïve at that time to know my excellent good luck. I have a PhD in criminal legal history and some time in the near future I’ll be hanging up my potter’s apron and putting my academic brown cardi back on.
