The work attempts to describe energy itself, and in relationship to other. A positive and negative presence creating balance and harmony. Driven by the desire to ‘animate the inanimate’ with idea and form. We share the same destiny after all.

Whilst much of my time is spent working as an Art Director and Props Maker for television, I maintain a sculptural practise. I have exhibited at Sculpture in the Vinyards for the past three years. Earlier this year my work was also shown at KASPE. In the last year I have had a number of challenging and interesting prop builds as part of my television work. The opportunity to establish new areas of expertise and hone further skills has always been strong motivation and reward for this work. Recent areas of exploration have included LED lighting , remote control mechanism, and figurative sculpture.
