Artist Statement

Working predominantly in metals, I create an eclectic range of sculpture and contemporary furniture. Highly aesthetic in nature, you will find much of my work curvaceous and tactile, but with a coarseness that is lent from working with bare steel.. My style ranges from figurative to abstract and is always in context with its environment. I have had experience assisting in the production and installation of major artworks across the country since 2001. Since 2003 I have been working on my own commissions and large-scale pieces, which have included artworks made from steel, stainless steel, resin and wood.
