Profile

With a background in theatre I find that handling hot glass is surprisingly similar to the stage; Spontaneity, improvisation and chance are all elements that I enjoy and exploit, both in the making and in the final installation.
Stimulated by the sculptural possibilities of human form and the organisation of musculature, I hope to create dialogue between the viscous and sinuous qualities of the glass medium.
My work alludes to the tenuous nature and fragility of human tissue, whilst also referring to its inherent strengths. It is similarities between glass and muscle, flesh and fluids of the body that inspires the making and installation of these forms.

Urbaneyes
Having moved my studio from the banks of the Yarra River bend to the inner city edge, I have become fascinated with the vibrant outdoor gallery on my doorstep. The series Urbaneyes is inspired by the vibrant and contrasting styles of street art and graffiti which adorn the streets of Cremorne and Richmond in a bombing of vividly contrasting colours.
