“My tenth exhibit is just as big a thrill as my first. In 1999 when I first exhibited I was a much younger artist. Since then a flurry of other opportunities have opened up and defined me to my family and friends as a sculptor. In the beginning, I was in a position to exhibit all the time, but life gets hectic and can take you in other directions. You have to be in a position to be able to take up other opportunities. Sculpture by the Sea as an exhibition makes sculpture more accessible to the general public. When I first started sculpting, people struggled to view me as an artist. Sculpture by the Sea has changed the perception of the public to view and legitimise sculptors like myself as artists.”
