Artist Biography


My work speaks in a vernacular of regional new Zealand with a focus the natural
world. I explore the intimate narrative of family, connection and home, strongly
influenced by the landscapes in which I lived. I have a fascination with the precarious
nature of our existence and ideas around cultural history and consciousness of the
human condition.
