I grew up on a farm between Kojonup and Frankland and I’ve always loved art and nature. I thought about becoming a graphic designer when I finished school, but went down a different road, due to the lack of opportunities at the time. Now I’m at Designer Dirt, I am really enjoying being able to create as an everyday part of my work, especially being able to combine gardening and art through the versatility of metal and recycled materials. I love working with metal and found objects as they are so adaptable and durable. Ageing metal in the garden looks like it just belongs and using different metals, including corten steel, as well as different special effects paints gives so many options.
