During the 1990s I was wearing Dunlop Volleys almost exclusively, and would wear out a pair in less than 12 months. I began to save the worn-out pairs with the intention of making an artwork one day, and this year’s Artstreet has presented me with the opportunity. I Love building and frequently feel the Magic of creativity in my work. If these shoes could talk they could tell you many stories from a career spent crafting “”Sculptures That People Can Live In”” right here in the upper Blue Mountains.
