Alan’s eye for detail and ability to create art with exceptional precision and intricacy is something to be celebrated. His favourite medium is wood, driftwood specifically, and other found objects (natural and man made) collected from Australia’s coastline. Alan’s work is celebrated nationally and his wooden sculptures are award-winning. Alan lives on the Southern Yorke Peninsula with his creative family and enjoys watching his wife and children find joy through their artistic talents too. “As soon as Steph and Robyn approached me about contributing a bat for Warooka Bats for Will, I was excited to be a part of such an excellent community movement. Creating a thin garfish, a prolific fish off the coast of where we live (from driftwood and other beach- combed pieces) worked well on this narrow canvas. The fishing rope that can be used to hang the bat is a re-purposed piece of beach debris, showing that everything and everyone is useful and should be given an opportunity to have an important role in this world”.
