My sculptures are an extension of my artistic experiences. As an art lover and collector, my interests are eclectic – an exploration of colours, shapes and textures. As a sculptor, I primarily work with stone, interacting with it to reveal the essence and vision of its true self. Interpreting and viewing a sculpture is a personal emotional experience, unique to an individual. My pieces are contemporary and abstract, inviting you to experience them within your own context and personal interpretation of their meaning. Like me, they don’t have many sharp edges; rather curves, positive and negative space, and conversation between the different sides of the stone.

After a successful career as a corporate executive, I joined the artistic community as a stone sculptor, my favourite art form, and found my passion and myself in the world of fine art.

My creativity is born from the wonderful art I’ve enjoyed during my life, my fertile imagination, and deep appreciation of form, texture and colour. My technical expertise was developed through training and mentorship by renowned artists, and my cherished collection of sculptural pieces, collected throughout my years as a patron. Together, these experiences have allowed me to develop my artistic eye and sense of balance and colour.

Sculpting is a solitary but rewarding art form. Each day brings new ideas, experiences, and successes. My technical range and artistic abilities continually evolve as I mature as an artist with each new piece lending me its confidence to continue to build my substantial portfolio.

About the Artist

As a sculptor, I have a fertile imagination, and deep appreciation of form, texture and colour. My sculptures exist as an extension of my artistic experiences and are conceptual designs in thought-provoking materials. My technical expertise was developed through training and mentorship by two renowned artists, and my cherished collection of sculptural pieces collected throughout my years as a patron. Together, these experiences have allowed me to develop my artistic eye and sense of balance and colour.
