As far back I can remember, I’ve always loved creating things with my hands and the process of painting, sculpting and drawing. As a young boy I’d often play with clay from the earth and enjoyed the organic and tactile ability to invent anything that came to mind. I harness a real passion for being creative as it personally brings gratification knowing my works give joy to others; which harness purpose and meaning from the illustrations and significance of the shapes themselves along with that I genuinely put my heart in to each piece as I create.
I think it’s important that we all share what we are proud of – for me, it’s my creative works.
Often I am asked where I draw on for inspiration. My love for travel and exploring other cultures and their hand-made communities really opens your eyes and mind to adapting new techniques and discovering materials to introduce in to your own work; an endless evolution to shaping your individual style. I seek out natural materials to assemble a majority of my work from beads and fibres to communicate a love for nature which endlessly elevates me for use of colour and textures. As an artist, I believe the creative community all have something to share with other like minded and naturally find other Australian artists and those afar very enriching.
My creativity does not just end with making art and objects, I have a background in the creative arts and photography – so I too enjoy styling and taking images of my product as much as I do creating them to forge a storytelling which refines my style and brand, while reflecting my personality.
As for this creative journey, it’s only just begun – I’m looking forward to sharing so much more as I grow in to the person I’m still learning so much about.
