I live in the Jervis Bay area, New South Wales, Australia.
I worked as an architect primarily along the south coast of New South Wales, Australia for over 20 years.
The weird and fantastic forms in nature, some very small and barely noticeable, have always amazed me. They change shape, colour and texture as they grow and decay. They are so different and foreign to the "man-made" forms I've been used to dealing with. They are shaped by our environment. They have no “ornament”. They are, what they are - a form purely derived by its function.
The aesthetic experience one has when viewing and touching these objects is, in its essence, what I wish to convey.
I’m fascinated by our culture and heritage, in particular, how we built and made things, and how these things in their “essence” are shaped by necessity from their function and our environment. I often draw from this in my work.
