I am a visual artist and created a concept called BIGLOVEBALL, as the manifestation of many feelings I had when shifting from the world of things to spaces, moments and people. Tired of expressing myself through stuff, I was forced to take stock of my existence when my computer mouse battery expired and the screen announced dryly,


I set out to engage in the physical world seeking matterful connection with friends I’d not yet met. I felt compelled to express my love for humanity as swiftly and as vastly as I could. To share my profound feeling in an uncomplicated way. As I think in visual metaphor, I created a five foot inflatable ball with the bold word LOVE emblazoned across its breadth to directly communicate what I felt within my heart for those around me. Sharing one in the front window of my studio grew organically into creating public gestures, in real time amongst thousands. Social media became my conduit, allowing me to illuminate concepts of importance.

As my intention was to honour others, this big buoyant symbol of inclusion and connection now had a function. I was delivered from a state of stagnation and loneliness, with hours upon hours of exciting, silly, deepening, moving things to do before me.

I remain a culture gawker with an insatiable appetite for art, nature, design, music, fashion, literature and film. I love mondo and micro moments. Enriched with my own sense of purpose I rest at the end of the day, full. Tomorrow excites me.


As love is universal, BIGLOVEBALL belongs to the people as permanent public art.
