Originally trained in graphic design and illustration, Robert Marshall worked as a commercial artist in Adelaide, until he threw it in and began creating fine art and sculpture. He then moved to Gordonvale, FNQ.
Having experimented with different art styles and media, he became fascinated with copper. Copper is a soft malleable metal, that when torched, brings out amazing colours.
He loves the challenge of making something surreal out of everyday objects, such as the recycled copper tea pot that became an elephant.
