From the UK just north of London, Shireen arrived in Australia (Sydney) in 1981, in her early twenties. Pursuing a career in hospitality and tourism, Shireen found herself in Cape Tribulation in 1991. A tea-drinking heritage (Anglo/Indian) working the restaurant, hotel, catering circuit and an instant passion for clay quickly evolved into a ceramic home-based studio practice. The desire to make objects to be used daily by all led to the setting up of small trader business ‘Cool Earth Ceramics’ (2003). The rhythm and continuity of production create the platform and stability for the development of other works. Exhibiting locally and interstate over the years, Shireen plans to continue.
