Australian sculptor and artisan stonemason

 

I explore changes in natural stone, through placement in different environments.

I begin sculpting when I discover specific veins of sandstone. A large portion of my work is Grampians sandstone, sourced in Victoria.

The weight and logistics of larger scale works, led me to begin ‘portable’ sculptures. The first portable, Stone River #6, weighs 800 kilos. The early works are from the Stone River series.

My expanding body of sculpture now includes; the geometric seriesPlanets of Galaxy Z and the Hedron series.

I instinctually follow the natural lines and features of individual pieces of stone to create them as new forms.

Based in St Kilda, I travel far and wide, installing and exhibiting my work.
