Marble Mosaic & Metal Sculptures

I studied Fine Art – Sculpture at RMIT (1989-1991).  My focus soon moved to mosaic and my Italian heritage took me back to Italy where I studied ancient and traditional methods and approaches to mosaic art making (2007). I create individual works through a meticulous labour-intensive process, which includes cutting each piece of marble by hand, with use of a hammer and hardie. Much of my work is commissioned based. My work is about a quiet forgotten simplicity, a tradition, and my conveying of these two things.
