a Sydney based Sculptor and Landscape
Architect. I started sculpting 15+ years ago and doing less landscape design
with the advent of a growing family. Nowadays, sculpture is my main creative outlet.
Over the years, I have completed courses in sculpture
with renown sculptors such as Tom Bass, Alan
Somerville, Marguerite Derricourt, Michael Christie, Barbara Campbell- Allen,
Margo Gabsy, Ingrid Morley, Dave Horton and Michael Vaynman. My design background as a Landscape Architect
has added to my experience and interest in public art -an avenue of sculpture
which I am currently pursuing. I am a member of the Sculptors Society and
exhibit regularly with the Society as well as working on private commissions.
My sculptural works often result in stylized forms which
exhibit clean lines with tactile finishes.
The forms tend to organic shapes with minimal detail yet manage to
impart meaning and substance within the essence of the work. The works start
either as drawings or clay models which can then be translated to either a
different media such as bronze, resin, steel, cement fondue, paper pulp or
fired ceramic works. Generally, the
material used is what best suits the situation. For public art works, I look to
durable materials such as stainless steel and bronze.
A lot of things - both
tangible and experiential inspire my
works. I like the challenge of working to a brief -whether it is a brief
advocated by a client or one I decide on for myself. I am often experimenting with different
materials and techniques along with the tried and true methods to create my
sculptures. My recent solo exhibition
was based on the theme of music . In that exhibition, I introduced both an interactive
element and sound/music to my sculptures.
I have a studio at home and also share a space with
fellow sculptors at the Workshop Arts Centre. For public commissions I have several reliable
fabricators and installers. I am currently a finalist for a Public Art Project
