"Born in 1958 in the Waikato, I grew up in Rotorua where I went to school , and then embarked on a career in the NZ Police. After 12 years I took early retirement and whilst doing various jobs decided to teach myself to carve. That was 20 years ago.
A practical person by nature,and a realist by experience, I now try to create sculptures which appear life like, and which reflect the different layers of detail that make up that reality. I find clothing interesting, in that it can be a reflection of ourselves, our culture, how we feel, and sometimes how we wish the world to perceive us."
