Garry graduated from the Blackpool School of Art in the UK in the late 60's and shortly afterwards commenced work at Channel 7, Canberra, as photographer and news cameramen. Much of his life's work was in the photographic world. In the mid 70's Garry, together with his wife, Wendy, built a 14 metres ferro-cement yacht which became their home for several months.
The ferro-cement consisted basically of 8 layers of bird wire which was sculptured into the shape of the yacht then plastered with cement. Nowadays, Garry is content with much smaller bird-wire sculptures � brolgas, octopus, jellyfish and goannas, etc.
More recently Garry was the artist in residence for 18 months at the Myall Park Botanic Garden in the semi-arid western downs area of S. W. Queensland - and it was here that he started to work with rusty and discarded corrugated iron which can be found in great abundance in some places. Garry has held many successfull birdwire workshops throughout Queensland and in 2012 will be holding workshops and demonstrations of his unique craft in various locations in northern Japan.
Both his bird wire and rusty iron sculptures can be found throughout the western downs region of Southern Queensland and in selected galleries in far Northern Queensland. Garry's long term dream is to sculpt a flock of life-size dancing Brolgas and other animals using bird wire and have them installed somewhere in the outback. Garry is also available for artist-in-residence arrangements and workshops: so if your establishment is in need of such an arrangement please enquire regarding the benefits that it will bring to your establishment.
