His creations, including Plantbird, Torpedoshark, and Potatofishcar blur the line between plants, animals and machines. He says he is inspired by sites such as old wrecked cars that have been overgrown by plants, what he calls "the triumph of nature over industry."

The graduate of the Canberra School of Art is currently working on his Ph.D. He's spent the last dozen years at Jam Factory in Adelaide, a combination studio/gallery art space. He's described there as "one of Australia's leading contemporary glass artists."
