I live and work in Hobart Tasmania where the plentiful, unique and diverse environment provides endless opportunities for my inspiration.
It was my first passion as a taxidermist, an art learned back in Poland that led me into my first foray as a sculptor. Native Australian wildlife absolutely fascinated me and that’s where I found my niche as an artist. Extensive background knowledge in animals’ anatomy, years of sculpture studying and hard work resulted in my ability to capture the character, spirit and fine details of my subjects in bronze.
I am hands-on with my bronze work at every step. I design, sculpt, make the mould, and execute the casting and the patina – controlling every stage of the process. The sculptures are cast in silicon bronze at my local foundry using the lost wax process. This technique preserves excellent detail, readily accepts a good colour range of patina treatments and stands up well under all weather conditions. Each artwork is a unique composition, so there are no two exactly the same.
My sculptures have attracted lots of attention from followers and collectors all over the world.
