In my work at Whirlwood Studio here in Marlborough, my philosophy is to create pieces that are pleasing to both me as the artist and to those who will own them. To this end emphasis is placed on shape, form, colour and texture, with each item being designed to be unique, whether it is for interior or exterior positioning. Works are designed for placement on walls, tables, plinths, gardens and entrances to public or commercial buildings.
I like to challenge the viewers of my art, thus many pieces are allegorical or symbolic and are often created in 'series'. Currently my 'series' list is:
- Myths & Legends
- Evolution / Primeval / Primordial
- Shaky Isles (New Zealand)
My works are held in collections both here in New Zealand and in many countries around the world. Commissions are an integral part of my creative activities and these are done in a totally collaborative way.
