Most of my sculpture is contemporary abstract, comprising shape, form, colour and texture; but sometimes during the creative process, figurative shapes appear. I work intuitively, allowing the work itself to dictate the final outcome.

I am a self-taught contemporary abstract sculptor. I do both indoor and outdoor work and my main mediums are wood and concrete. I use coloured oxides in my concrete mix to achieve an earthly appearance to complement the Australian outback.

With the indoor work, I fabricate in wood then coat them with acrylic paint mainly in earthly colours. I also have work cast in bronze, aluminium and stainless steel.

I have been involved in many group shows and have had several one-man exhibitions.
