I travelled the world with my family and had the chance to discover many amazing countries and cultures. All those powerful memories inform my imagination and I try to immortalise them in my works.
Travelling triggers my creativity, but to create, I need to be in a nurturing and harmonious environment like my studio at Bayside Sculpture. Here I find working amongst other artists of various backgrounds and nationalities a very enriching experience. I work with different media: ceramics, stone, chicken wire, driftwood and found objects. I have been exhibiting extensively in group exhibitions since 2005 and have sold my works both here and overseas and most of my works can be commissioned in bronze to a limited edition.
