Location: Auckland, New Zealand
I grew up in a creative family on the East Coast of Zealand . I have a degree in Media Arts from Waikato Polytechnic. Following this I moved to Wellington where I produced several successful exhibitions in cafes and galleries.
After travelling through Central America I have settled in Auckland, where I work as an Art Teacher in South Auckland: Developing a innovative art curriculum, I try to challenge children's conceptions of art, motivating them beyond the classroom and into the
community, the broader arts community and into 'the business of art & design'. My curriculum has seen the students custom design
sneakers, leading to their subsequent manufacture in China; the students have also designed and manufactured large installations occupying
Auckland's waterfront. My current series of work is a combonation of moody abstract backgrounds and figuarative elements inspired by fashion illustration. The themes relate to my issues with identity and body. image.
