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.
After graduating as a Meisterschüler in silversmithing at the Academy of Fine Art Nürnberg, Germany, I completed a Graduate Diploma at The Australian National University, School of Art and Design in 1993. I worked as a senior lecturer at the ANU till 2018. In 2007 I received a national teaching award - a Carrick citation, in 2016 a Distinguished Teaching Award (ACUADS) and the 2017 ANU Vice Chancellor's Award for teaching excellence. In 2014 I become a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy UK. Currently I am working as a self-employed artist in my studio.
