As contemporary designer/maker I work with a variety of materials and processes. I use digital technologies together with traditional metal working techniques and have a particular interest in the integration of digital fabrication with traditional ways of making.
Based in Canberra, I exhibit nationally and internationally. My works include public art projects like the 'Coat of Arms' at the Canberra magistrates court, sculptural-objects based on mathematical equations, Light objects using LEDs and folded forms made from composite aluminium. My work has been included into the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, the Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences, Sydney and the Canberra Museum and Gallery.
