Artist Biography

Artist statement-
“Knowing trees I understand the meaning of patience and knowing grass I can appreciate persistence.
I have been a full-time Christchurch artist since 2000. I initially worked at the Christchurch Arts Centre for 5 years, during which time I transitioned from sculpture to painting. My current art practice primarily takes the form of painting and drawing and commonly involves the interpretation and construction of concepts regarding the natural environment, the human condition and the relationship between the two.”
