Inspired by the natural world, I use found objects – iron, stone, wood, bone and glass to create. I love to play with all these materials. I change and reshape them, over and again as I desire. Nothing is fixed.
I have worked with the natural world all my adult life and have created art gardens everywhere I have lived for the past 20 years or more. I began my professional life as a landscape gardener, as an apprentice in the Castlemaine Botanical Gardens, at age 15 and worked for many years designing and landscaping both public and private gardens.

A Gathering of local artist, artisans and hand makers of quality goods.
Gathering is the culmination of 2 fellow creators who wanted to be able to share a space for their wares. We have also opened that space to fellow local creatives to be able to show and sell their goods and utilise the space for creation and conducting workshops to pass on their craft. An ‘artistic co-operative’ if you will.
We will be constantly adding new creations and showcasing new creators so the space will always be new and exciting.
Troublemagazine is your art life online ... a highly desirable FREE monthly online magazine dedicated to promoting performing, visual and virtual art throughout Australia and globally.

What is a WIRE TAMER? An artist who bends wire to his will. I don’t twirl it or twist it – I TAME it. Wire is just like a wild animal – its dangerous! Especially the wire I use: rusty antique eight gauge fencing wire. It can whiplash up to three meters if you are not careful, and it will rip your skin open in a flash. But not after I’ve finished with it… when I’m done its safe enough for young children to handle. I illustrate with wire.
