My practice is broad, encompassing painting, hoops works for walls, ceramics and printmaking. Over the past 16 years of working professionally as an artist since graduating from Elam, I have developed my work by creating a series of cohesive works. I focus on utilising colour, texture & materials in a unique and original way, making each piece distinctively recognizable. 

Recent developments include having works in the Private Collection of the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge, being selected as a finalist in the 2019 Portage Ceramic Awards & being selected as Finalist in the Waiheke Small Sculpture Award 2020.
