I have been developing biological-like sculptures based on research into plants, seeds, fungi, fish, microscopic plankton, viruses and bacteria. They are constructed from found sticks and pruned wood, plastic lawn trimmer cord, glue and oil paint. I use traditional mortise and tenon joinery method.

In my local environment I am surrounded by the bush and wildlife. The environment, forests, animals, insects and my lifestyle have all been included in my artworks over time. Dogs have always been part of my life. My sculpture method is construction where I use traditional mortise & tenon joinery, dowelling and glue. The three dogs are made from found Eucalyptus branches and sticks and prunings of domestic trees such as nectarine.
