Avis is a visual artist and designer/maker specialising in ceramics and silver. She works primarily in three areas, Jewellery, Sculpture and Funerary Art and exhibits regularly.
In her practice, her love of experimentation with the dynamic chemistry between media and techniques physically expresses her ideas.
