For twenty-five years I have been teaching children about the wonders of the natural world and, in particular, the many astonishing creatures and flowers native to Western Australia.
My love of nature, and passion for the environment provides a limitless reservoir of ideas. I have often been inspired by the drawings of young children, marveling at their lack of inhibition and innate ability to create unique designs. Animals and plants are integral to our wellbeing, and I hope that the quirky expressions on the faces of my sculptures bring a little gladness into the world.
