I enjoy being able to fully explore my creativity and artistry through my sculptures. I enjoying carving my sculptures from New Zealand Jade and Greenstone, but I enjoy experimenting with the other stones I have collected from the South Island over the years.

 

Sometimes I create my sculptures from cut stone and other times I see forms in the natural shapes the stone possesses. These dips and curves are the stones personality and they sometimes inspire my ideas the most. I often create bases made from wood for the sculptures to stand on.
