I am fascinated by ancient civilisations, their cultures to distinguish themselves and document their histories. and how they created ceremonial art forms and objects By unravelling their mysteries we inevitably learn more about ourselves. Through cross-cultural exploration of our origins, our ancestors and the land, I seek to replicate that sense of wonder and mystery. which reflects in my work through beading, I have a deep respect for artistic traditions sewing, carving and bronze work. The graphic and narrative nature of my work is an outflow of my formal graphic design background and the use of symbolism creates a universal language. I am hands-on and create all my work in my foundry My sculptures have found homes on Waiheke Island, New Zealand. locally and internationally.
