My work is allegorical in nature; pieces describe moments in time capturing a simpler world inhabited by gentle, innocent characters.
With careful attention to gesture, expression and imagery, I explore moments in my personal journey offering the viewer a canvas to reflect on their own life experience.
After the loss of my family home and studio in the 2021 Wooroloo fire, I have found a level of peace in the exploration of transition in my art.
The characters evoke the insecurity of exposure, its resultant cleansing and the awakening of new possibilities.
Sculptures are original chalk resin/paper clay over steel and timber armatures. Carving is performed with blades and rotary burrs. The original concept sketches are then converted into paper clay putty and worked back into the sculpture during detailing physically adding to the soul of each piece. The completed carvings are then sealed before painting.
As an artist I look for tooling and brush marks in both my own and other artist’s work, searching for that human touch that links the artist physically to their work.
