"Peaks" MDF - carved, dyed
Welcome to my world......
I am a Dunedin-born artist who has been living near Blenheim since 2003. The move northward involved both a geographic and a paradigm shift – from a business teaching career in Dunedin to a full-time creative wood artist in Marlborough. My medium is primarily wood but the inclusion of other materials adds extra dimensions to my pieces. My range of works includes freestanding sculptural pieces (for both indoor and outdoor settings), woodturnings, furniture and innovative wall pieces.

"My philosophy is to create pieces that please me and those who wish to own the works. I love to challenge the viewers of my art, so many pieces are allegorical or have several layers of meaning. Each piece is designed to be unique. The freedom to imagine and innovate is an all-important part of my life as a creative wood artist."
