I began 19 years ago not knowing what lay ahead and where the journey would take me. Initially I started creating pieces of art work for family, friends and relatives. Very soon word spread and I was asked to create and manufacture pieces for the 1999 ‘Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show’. One piece was a 3.5 meter length Water Feature, another was a Table & Chair setting inspired by a recent trip to Paris. The display at the Show won a Gold Medal in the Show Garden category. Images of my design were published in an English Water Feature Book and also in Gardening Australia volumes A-Z. Following the success in Melbourne and later in Sydney, interest in my work increased dramatically. Working with many Landscapers and Architects to supply their clients with a diverse range of art work was becoming a full time job. I primarily used stainless, mild steel and also glass for these designs. I also used recycled material when it was not in fashion to create natural eye pleasing objects. I have continued my work with the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show designing specific pieces for varying displays. I have also designing many sites with and for other landscapers winning many awards. One major piece commissioned was a Bi Fold Fence. This design was made and constructed by myself to open from a private courtyard out on to a park in Hawthorn. The success of this design result in images published in ‘Inside Out’ Magazine 2006. It was also featured on the the TV show ‘Gardening Australia’. My work has also widely appeared in these magazines and newspapers: ‘Home Beautiful’, ‘Australian Horticultural’, ‘Gardening Australia’, ‘The Age’ and the ‘Herald Sun’. Various pieces have also been featured on TV. ‘Burkes’ Backyard ‘ and ‘The Lifestyle Channel’. In this display there are just a handful of items from the diverse range of work that I produce. I hope you like and maybe enjoy a piece of my work in your garden.
