I work intuitively, influenced by organic forms found in rock, bone and landscape. I am inspired by the Australian bush, abstract forms and the peace and calm of nature. I create works to be unexpected, express strength and movement yet, bring a sense of peace and calm. These sculptural forms are hand built and represent our lost gum trees both real and imagined. They are designed to sit quietly in the garden.
