I am a semi-retired fitter machinist, toolmaker, welder type person who has always been highly creative and inventive. My experience and skills allow me to work with many different materials, especially metal. This foundation coupled with my imagination has meant I have been successful in securing several large public art works and numerous awards. For 6 years I was the Chairperson for the Hedland Arts Council (HArtz) in WA, currently I am on the committee for Sculptures Qld and until recently I was the Vice President for the Beaudesert and District Arts Group. I have work in PNG and Indonesia for over 14 years and a further 11 years in Pilbara of WA. I have always had a fascination with primitive cultures and their art. As the Chairperson for HArtz I've worked closely with the local indigenous artist, mainly the Martumilli and Spinifex hill mobs. I have been mentored by the fabulous Jon Tarry, participated in workshops with Mathew Hardy and Vlase Nikoleski and I am eager for more training and knowledge.
