I live in a gorgeous part of the world on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Queensland, Australia on an acre of land with my partner Glen and Mini Fox Terrier named, Max. It's mostly green and lush all year round, allowing me to grow an abundant supply of organic produce. We like to live simply and happily...
I work as a full time artist - Sculptor and Ceramist - my sculptural works consist of rusted welded metal, steel and found objects welcoming the 'laws of chance' whilst assembling. My ceramics can be large, boisterous, and rustic made with heavily grogged clay, or, very fine and delicate made in porcelain. Sometimes I combine both clay and metal, often going off the beaten track to explore different mediums and techniques.
Although I am extremely disciplined, freedom (of expression) rates highly on my list, resulting in an unorthodox approach to my arts practice and daily routine. I love every minute of being creative and an artist, and chose to continue to do so for the rest of my time here on earth!
