Greg is an internationally acclaimed metalworker who was the featured artist in 2007 T.E.D. (Technology, Entertainment and Design) Conference in California.
His unique style features re-purposed steel figures and intricate machines that are a little unnerving but also utterly charming! A born experimenter Brotherton seemed destined to become an artist from an early age – and what an artist he has become!
Take it away Greg!
