Went to University of Newcastle—graduated 1985 with BAVA, Sculpture

Sulpture is a meeting place of ideas, feelings, intentions and understanding.

My work starts with inspiration from the environment or from a poetic wondering.  Then from this seed, comes how to ‘say’ this and in what material.  The sculpture grows.  

Inspiration can come from anywhere;  something ‘speaks’ to me:  thoughts, nature or life or something wants to become visible.   It could be something material, something fragile, or something imponderable.  

Slowly a work finds  a vitality of its own.  Observing the changes in the material stimulates the way I consider and re-consider what I am making.  I strive for a balance between the original idea and the material and what develops in the making.  


I enjoy making large scale works when the opportunity presents.  The photographs are of my last large indoor installations and outdoor commissions.
