What inspires your art practice?
When I was young I trained as a monumental mason before attending art school. No doubt because of this background I have always been interested in the way we memorialise people, places and events.
What materials do you work in?
Bronze, fibreglass, steel, wood, and stone.
Describe your artwork for NZ Sculpture OnShore 2021
Librarsi in Italian means to balance, hover and soar. This work is a development of an earlier sculpture (My world revolves around me 2021) which investigates ideas relating to how we are playing with our world and creating a delicate balance in the process.
Where are the public most likely to see your artworks outside of NZSOS?
Various public sculptures including the bronze of Sir Edmund Hillary at Mt Cook, Pelorus Jack at French Pass, The Sea Lion and pup at St Clair Dunedin and the Cedar cone in the Dunedin public gardens.
Where did you study?
Otago Polytechnic School of Fine Art
