Born in 1976, I grew up on a small farm in the rural community of Waimauku in the western outskirts of Auckland. I expressed a strong passion for art from an early age and was a prolific painter throughout my education. After finishing my Bachelor of Arts degree, I worked in the film and television industry for ten years both in the UK and New Zealand. Strong connections were still maintained to other art mediums throughout this time. After extensive travel through Europe, the Middle East and Asia I returned to New Zealand. My experiences abroad created a renewed focus towards my art. Over the following years I have redirected my energy towards painting. I currently paint full time and teach art and yoga on a part time basis.
