I have been working as a professional sculptor for 30 years, undertaking many private and corporate commissions during that time, including hospitals, hotels, wineries, schools and apartment complexes.

Private commissions and exhibition work for interior and exterior spaces, large and small, have been acquired nationally, and internationally in New Zealand, Asia, UK, Italy and The Netherlands.

Over the years I have worked and experimented with a variety of materials, however these days I prefer to work with clay – it gives me the freedom of movement and size I love, allowing my figurative/abstract sculptures to be fluid, sensuous, emotive or purely graphic.

My first and remaining inspiration is the great Henry Moore, also contemporary Australian sculptors Maria Kuczynska and Marea Gazzard (a coincidence both named Maria??)

The enduring and principal inspiration for me has always been the human form, particularly female, and the emotive response and interaction of everyday life.  

my central mantra is -
‘in simplicity is beauty’.
