What inspires your art practice?
I am inspired by works from ancient cultures and civilisations. Art has been an important part of my life and I’ve always endeavoured to instill elements of serenity and contemplation to reflect the need I feel for hope and peaceful existence.
What materials do you work in?
I work mainly in iron-bearing Terracotta clays fired to around 1150 degrees C. The bases are Corten Steel.
Briefly describe your artwork for NZ Sculpture OnShore 2018.
These two pieces hand built from terracotta clay are reminiscent of work traditionally placed at entrance ways to protect family life within the home.
Where are the public most likely to see your artworks outside of NZ Sculpture OnShore?
Most of my work is in private gardens and homes, however it can be found at Glenbervie Pottery Gallery.
Where did you study?
Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts
