‘Skeletal dragons’ the same year explored skeletons and bones. I drew them, made spine vases and reduced the dragons to their bone structure. These are still some of my favourite pieces.
1990 ‘Alice 125’: City Square.
Alice 125’ This was a major exhibition curated by who was the Director of the Gryphon Gallery at Melbourne State College. This Exhibition was in City Square and celebrated Alice in Wonderlands 125th Birthday. I loved making these sculptures and they were the largest pieces I had attempted.

1993 ‘The Avian Attraction’: One Man Show: Blackwood St Gallery. ‘The Avian Attraction’ explored Birds in all their variety. The next few years saw me working on both streams of work and increasing the size and scale of pieces.
‘Clay Fever’: V.C.G. Annual Show: M.M.C.C.
1995 ‘Return of the Dragon’: Two Person Show: Northcote Pottery Gallery
1996 ‘Parrotphernalia’: One Man Show: V.C.G. Gallery: M.M.C.C.
1998 ‘Dancers, Acrobats and Angels’: Customs Wharf Gallery. ‘Dancers Acrobats and Angels’ was my first show at Customs Wharf although I had work in their Gallery shop for many years before this. This show was the first of all figurative work and all of the pieces were small and very detailed. I wanted to get a sense of movement in the work that you cannot get from a life class. All the pieces were based on photographs as the models could never have held the poses for the time needed.
