I grew up in Christchurch, New Zealand and now live in Geraldine in South Canterbury. Art has always been a big part of my life and I studied for four years at the Canterbury School of Fine Arts, and completed a Fine Arts Degree majoring in photography. I have exhibited in various group exhibitions including the ‘Here And Now’ exhibition at the Aiganthe Public Gallery in Timaru in 2104, and the Salon de Refuse exhibition at the Waikato Society of Arts in 2016. My interest in print-making methods have developed over the years with a love for the simplicity of monotypes, their painterly looseness, and the more drawing-like lines of the drypoint. My work has a very strong connection with the local land and the environment. Most recently I have been influenced by my time in London exploring the history of painting, in the woods together with my family, ancestry, and environmental comparisons to the homeland.
