I love to draw and design – detail and complexity.
I am a sculptor and mosaic artist.
I sculpt in concrete, hebel and clay. Many of my sculptures are covered in mosaic.
My clay sculptures are abstract and detailed. A separate website for selling my clay sculptures is under construction and soon to be published.
In my career, I taught mosaic workshops in schools around Queensland, produced public seating with community participation and worked on numerous mosaic commissions.
One recurring theme in my designing has been Castles. I have built a couple of small Castles but always wanted to build a full sized one.
In 2010 my partner Christina and I started to build Castle Phoenix. Finally, my sculptures and mosaics are for my own project.
The gardens and walls around our Castle are all concrete sculptures.
