INTRODUCING OUR ARTISTS

This has enabled him to partake in the production of innovative displays, accurate scientific models and the production of world class exhibitions. His experience of working in an accurate historical subject matter has been incorporated into many sculpture commissions for cities and rural shires.
Challenging mediums such as stone, steel and bronze incorporate his desire for quality and permanence, in contrast to our society's throw-away attitude. However plastics are regularly utilized to create special effects. All the chipping, sanding or casting and smelting of bronze takes place near the shade of Eucalypts with-in Paul's Killarney mountain studio.
