“Influenced by the likes of artists such as: Andy Goldsworthy, H.C.Guyger and Martin Hill. I am interested in ancient megalithic sculpture and symbolic art. I enjoy creating and documenting sculptures of an ephemeral and more permanent nature, using mainly stone, steel and timber. Common themes in my work include; spirals, chaos and infinity, standing/balancing stones and geometry. I also explore these ideas in smaller scale carving and tattoo design.
Since graduating from Central Institute of Technology in 2006 I have won several awards including; 1st prize (tied) in the ‘Trek the Trail’ community walk and sculpture exhibition in 2009 with my sculpture ‘Unfurl’ and the ‘Artbound Sculpture Award’ in 2008 at Southbound Music and Arts Festival with ‘Sola Terra Luna’.”
Public art works include ‘Rock Bass’ Canning Hwy Applecross and ‘Sun, Earth and Moon’ at Bic Reserve, Bassendean.

‘Fergus the Seahorse' is a recent exploration into the mysterious and intriguing forms of ocean life. After pushing the scale of my works up to 4 metres tall, I've attempted to reduce the scale to a size that is more intimate and engaging to the viewer. Made from offcuts of previous sculptures and recycled elements, 'Fergus the Seahorse' has an appealing innocence.
