I use mainly wood (driftwood) which I collect in the valleys and streams of the Boland Mountains. The elements (wind, fire and water) have already weathered the wood to a dynamic energy. Every piece of wood has its own expressive character which I try to respect and use to create a story. I try to find the exciting point where medium and theme meet.
To enhance the emotional character of a sculpture I use different chisel marks. Different chisels leave different marks, each with its own emotional quality.
