Born in 1960 in New South Wales, Ian has travelled extensively throughout Australia and overseas.  He has no formal schooling in fine art but has been working professionally creating contemporary designs and sculpture since 1981.   

 

His passion for the outdoors and especially as an experienced kite surfer, has exposed Ian to the extremes of damage to the environment.  His unique style of simple flowing lines seeks refuge from these harsh ugly realities of life, focusing on minimalist organic forms inspired by the natural beauty and power of the wind, beachscapes, the ocean, and the human body.  His works are distillations of complex concepts into their essential aesthetic elements of line and form.

 

Ian works in bronze, timber, resin, stone, cement and ceramics.
