How long have been at TBSSS?
This is my second year at Tom Bass. I discovered the Sculpture School at the end of 2018 and decided to do some fun creative things as a new year resolution for 2019. After my first term with Christine as my teacher I was hooked and booked in for each term after that.
Where do you travel from each week?
I live in Tempe so it’s not far to travel to the School.
What do you do when you’re not sculpting?
For work, I own and operate a florist shop on the north shore which I have been doing for almost 20 years!
What made you take up sculpting?
2018 was a big turning point in my life, and I had decided to focus my spare time on new hobbies and other creative interests. So I started painting again and tried my hand at sculpting and welding. The welding didn’t eventuate to much, but painting and my weekly class at the sculpture school has stuck. I have also done a special workshop over the Christmas holidays and look forward to trying many new things here in the future.
Tell us about what you’re working on currently…
Due to COVID-19, my current works are locked in the school and I find myself working 6-7 days a week to maintain my business through this tough time.. So sculpture has been put on hold!
However, I am currently working with marble and working on a life-sized skull. I’m also trying to create a skull with clay just to learn about all the details of the skull – it’s like a life sized marquette.
