In 2003 I acquired the Embleton and Weir Cordial Factory at Hill End, with the intention of setting up a studio. In the last few years I have been designing and building studios and renovating the Cordial Factory. Hill End is a historic gold mining town, located in the central tablelands of New South Wales, near Bathurst. In the 1940’s, artists such as Russell Drysdale, Donald Friend, Jean Bellette, Paul Haefliger and Magaret Olley lived and worked there. The decades proceeding enticed other artists such as John Olsen, Brett Whiteley, John Firth-Smith and many more to spend time there working and this is the case to the present day.

Abstract compositions in the materials of metal and wood, predominate my work although I will work in any material that I feel is necessary.
