was born in Christchurch 1952. I grew up in Redcliffs where I spent
my first twenty years. I trained as a cabinetmaker after leaving
school but felt a bit restricted with the straight lines and flat
surfaces of the furniture I was required to make, and preferring
curves I turned to sculpture for my creative expression.
I like to travel to wild places
where I get my inspiration from Mother Nature and all her shapes.
I work with a lot of different
types of materials but really like to reuse and recycle thing that
would otherwise be wasted or discarded, e.g. demolition timbers,
driftwood and old wine bottles
