About Me

Rob is an artisan jeweller who works from his studio in Wangaratta. Rob began making jewellery as a teenager after taking night classes at the local community college. He later studied jewellery making and design at Goulburn Ovens College of TAFE and Charles Sturt University. Rob’s work has been exhibited at several locations including Muse Gallery in Milawa, Wangaratta Art Gallery, Charles Sturt University at Wagga Wagga, Bailey’s Winery at Glenrowan and SwellArts in Anglesea.
Rob's work will be shown as part of a multi-discipline exhibition with Tony Chalkley (tiny house maker) and Leah Humphrey (performance artist) at Staffordshire. Rob’s work will be exhibited in the Staffordshire Tiny House – an intimate space perfectly suited to displaying small, personal and wearable works of art. Rob has created an entirely new collection of jewellery for the Golden Plains Art Trail. He has drawn inspiration from the textures, landscape and history of Staffordshire. In making the collection, which includes works in silver and gold, Rob has employed a range of techniques to create several groups of work – reticulation, keum-boo gilding, fold-forming, roller-printing and chain-making. Some pieces evoke the topography of the Staffordshire area. Some take inspiration from the adjacent forest and landscape. Others have been informed by the gold-mining heritage and social history of the Staffordshire location and reference archaeology, artefact, remnants and memory.

Nowadays to walk down Regent Street in Steiglitz is like walking amongst ghosts. Once the towns business and social centre, it is now a dirt track with few buildings remaining.  As other towns in the region are practically exploding at the seams with people seeking the charm of country life, the population of Steiglitz remains at 7- a number represented throughout this work.

Tony has always been keen on building cubby houses. With a background in sculpture, prop making and design, it seemed natural that all these things would come together in a tiny house. Tony is a university lecturer by day and tiny house builder/sculptor by night.

I have always loved wool and started to spin when my girls were small. I progressed to weaving and felting after joining the Geelong Handweavers and Spinners Guild.
I have been fortunate in having the opportunity to exhibit samples of my work at local exhibitions, Geelong and Bendigo Shows and to have been a section winner at the Scarf Festival at the Geelong Wool Museum.

Painting
Location Red Location Green Location Yellow
North Trail

I have been drawing all my life and received honours and awards during my school years. I sold my first painting, a watercolour at 16.
About four years ago I had my first formal lessons in soft pastels and haven’t looked back, winning an award at the Bannockburn Art Show in 2015.
I also love acrylics for a slightly abstract style.
