Dimensions: 43 x 35 x 15cm
Artist Statement: The look of love depicts that wonderful aura of two people totally captivated in each others spell, in love, oblivious to all around.

Artist Statement: This sculpture depicts 2 birds flying in circles. We will be like the birds flying in circles, getting nowhere when trying to save our environment unless we start now with some definitive action, instead of passing the problems onto someone else.

Wood: Australian Red Cedar
Dimension: 60 x 40 x 30cm
Artist Statement: The sea inspires many of my sculptures. This is reflected here with the movement of the waves , the diving of seabirds and the leaping of whales out of the ocean. By fusing these elements in the one sculpture I endeavour to show how the two environments, the air and the sea, and all that lives in and on them are closely inter-connected.
Wood: Huon Pine
Dimensions: 82 x 30 x 30cm
Artist Statement: I have used the unblemished pale honey coloured grain of the huon pine to reflect the beauty of the Egret that always looks so clean and elegant as it feeds.
Dimensions: 75 x 35 x 35cm
Artist Statement: This sculpture reflects the joys I experienced when sailing; watching the bow slice through the waves and the exhilaration I felt as the boat ‘lifted her skirts’ and surged down the face of the wave.
Wood: Poinciana and black stain
Dimensions: 70 x 35 x 30cm
Artist Statement: The bond of a mother and child transcends all boundaries. The sculpture focuses on the bond, of a mother and the child that was inside her; the child she held close to her heart; it will always be part of her. This deep primal maternal love that she feels inside her is always with her…like a shadow in her heart.
Wood: Australian White Cedar
Dimensions: 80 x 30 x 30cm
Artist Statement: I am always enchanted by the freedom of birds as they gracefully glide, twist and turn in the air.
