“I have been inextricably linked with Sculpture by the Sea since it began. It has had a significant bearing on my career as a sculptor, providing me the opportunity to produce large scale works and to exhibit them in Sydney, Perth and Denmark. Additionally, being awarded a Helen Lempriere Scholarship in 2010 through Sculpture by the Sea provided me with the opportunity to travel to Europe and Japan to further my research into the use of steel in my sculptures. I was also able to see some of the great sculpture parks of the world, and to renew and develop new relationships.”
