My artworks are essentially about the retelling of our past – be it significant historic events, early explorers and adventurers, or purely imagining what might have been. And perhaps not surprisingly, there is strong influence from the sea, as I live at the edge of Wellington harbour.
I use a variety of mediums to create rich layers of texture in each work to bring out the inherent characteristics of beached plywood, or create textures from scratch on heavy canvas. I have always been drawn to natural textures and text, and it is a combination of these that is used to develop the story telling of each piece.
I have been a finalist in the World of WearableArt awards in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018 and exhibited at the New Zealand Art Show, Lochmara Lodge and the Miramar Peninsula Art Trail.
Outside of this creativity, I work as a Video Producer/Production Manager and Television Directors Assistant.
