In 2004 I attended the Ideas School at the Eastern Institute of Technology for their Level 3 full time course and discovered sculpture in clay. I have never looked back and my skills in mastering the difficult skill of creating a likeness in clay is due to a very observant eye for people and a constant practice. My work is always figurative.
The picture on the right is of my studio where I work on my clay sculpture, it is a converted former potting shed
My work featured in a number of galleries over the years. Today my main galleries are Muse Gallery in Havelock North, and The Artshed, at Bayview. Gallery Te Puna in Tauranga has recently become a client gallery.
My studio is part of the Hawke's Bay Art Trail in October during the Hawke's Bay Arts Festival each year. Outside of that time I welcome visitors to my Toop Street studio and request that you contact me to make a time when it is convenient to us both.
