What inspires your art practice?
My work is centred on the cyclic nature of life and humanity’s interconnectedness. I am inspired by the beauty in nature and its intricate patterns. We as humans are part of nature and as such are capable of displaying all that beauty.
What materials do you work in?
I work primarily in metals (Steel, Corten Steel, Stainless Steel and Alloys) and am currently working on a commission that involves recycled bridge timber, stainless steel and corten steel.
Briefly describe your artwork for NZ Sculpture OnShore 2018.
We can sometimes be like tightly coiled springs, caught up in trying to control how our world looks. When we dare to let go, even a little, we open ourselves to thinking and acting in new ways. We may be vulnerable but we are also able to shine and expand.
Where are the public most likely to see your artworks outside of NZ Sculpture OnShore?
Artbay Gallery Queenstown, Telecom HQ Auckland, Government House Wellington, Wairau River Winery, Rangi Ruru School Christchurch, Waiau Village Green.
