Statement

I'm a Wellington based artist working primarily in sculpture and drawing. My practice to date has been influenced by the natural and man-made environment, with a focus on interpreting form through line, shape, pattern and abstraction.

I've worked in collaboration with curators, art festivals, councils, architects, engineers, fabricators and other artists on a variety of public/private art based projects.

I've recently completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art at Massey University in Wellington, researching themes surrounding response, perception and cognitive persuasion.
