"Art has been my life, after graduating Dunedin school of Art in the early 90's I went on to teach art for over two decades. During that time I have also exhibited around NZ in various medium.
I have awards in drawing, Oils, Photography, Sculptural work and Printmaking. I have worked and travelled around NZ, from the Deep south, where I was born, to the Far North, and lots of places in between.
Over my life time I have grown a deepening understanding and love for our country, our whakaapapa, our connection to our land, a connection that as individuals, we all have. This is the inspiration of my works. I translate translate my love of Aotearoa through an adapted Japanese style woodblock technique."
