Mandy McDonald

I have been a student with Walter for approximately 4 years.

I started as a complete novice, with absolutely no prior skills or knowledge of jewellery and small sculpture techniques. Four years later I am exhibiting large metal and glass sculptural works at regional galleries in New South Wales and private institutions with works accepted into prestigious Art Prizes.

It is entirely due to Walter’s teaching skills and expertise coupled with his unerring enthusiasm and encouragement that has allowed me to grow as an artist. To say that attending Walter’s classes has been a life changing event for me would be an understatement…..
