I am most passionate about chainsaw carving, other carving and sculpting, and have been on my sculptural journey since 2010 when it all started. I believe that artistic creativity is an innate character trait rather than an acquired skill. I have always loved the experience of losing myself in thought and diving into the world of art and imagination. This creative introspection allows me to produce a niche art that is aesthetically beautiful and one-of-a-kind. Throughout my short career, I have accumulated and honed a repertoire of artistic techniques that have allowed me to better illustrate my intentions as an artist. My aim is to create unforgettable works and impart a deep emotional connection between objects and human beings whenever I begin a new piece. As a result, most of my work conveys the synthesis between the figurative and the abstract, and the real and imaginary. Between 2014 and 2023 I have won multiple prizes at Awards events. I am exhibiting regularly and am a member of WASA (West Australian Society of Arts, since 2022) and CASM (Contemporary Australian Surrealists Movement 2014- 2022). Details can be found on my website.
