“When I heard of a new sculpture exhibition at Bondi back in 1997, I had no idea what an impact Sculpture by the Sea would have on my work practice. Making and exhibiting a large scale work almost every year since then has provided the opportunity to show my work to a huge audience and meet  many other sculptors from Australia and other countries. Memories of hosting artists from PNG, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, the Czech Republic, USA and Austria have enriched my life experience and taken me out of the solitude of my studio in Walcha. Those friendships and connections have been a very important contribution to the way my artwork has developed. Thank you David and all his team over the last 26 years.”
