Wayne grew up in rural New Zealand, in Wairarapa, just north of Wellington.
Wayne has a passion for many forms of art. After further developing his skills in iron work, Wayne discovered a talent for consulting with clients to design and fabricate unique pieces to suit the architecture of their homes.
He successfully created Jalmer Wrought Iron with his wife Wendy, where he worked on commissioned wrought iron projects including ornate gates, balustrades, doors and furniture.
On moving to Perth in 2007, he started working on a new form of sculpture that reflects the old masters of the medium with modern welding methods.
Each piece is handcrafted and all are signed originals. Wayne does not work from drawings - instead letting inspiration, or a particular piece of steel influence the final result.
