Biography

Born in Taranaki, New Zealand in 1968. I attended The University of Auckland (Elam School of Fine Art) graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and Post-Graduate Diploma in Fine Art in 1995. I immigrated to Australia in 1998 and currently work from my Artsource studio in Ashfield. I also work part time as an Art Technician at Carey Baptist College.

Artist Statement

My practice is primarily painting and drawing and extends ideas of abstraction, landscape and identity. I experiment with the physicality of the medium and process to explore a more fluid approach allowing imagery to spring from process. I am increasingly interested in plasticity, and a psychological response to cultural and physical environments.
