Biography

"Fishing and walking on the reef allows me to observe closely the movements of sea creatures.  I have always loved to draw; it’s something that comes naturally and now I draw with wire to give the frames of my sculptural forms life and movement.  Currently I am working with ghostnet, using the lines of the rope to express stories that relate to the landscape, I am exploring different ways including digital imagery to use the destructive nets and ropes. I want to bring the animals and landscape together I want to embed myself and my community into the landscape so we are seen as one. This is my identity and culture."
