Artist Statement:

My painting practice is
Beauty essence and light are essential themes in my work.

I am inspired by the visual and sensory experience of the natural world around me. These everyday experiences make me feel alive, giving me bursts of energy that refresh my soul and being. This essence of life is what I long to express in my painting practice. By exploring with abstract paint application of marking making and gestural brush strokes, I have developed a unique painting style that successfully evokes the positive aspects of the nature world.


I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts [Quay School of the Arts] in 2014, majoring in painting. I debut at Space Studio and Gallery in 2016 with “Homeward Bound” and “Breathing in Eternity” in 2018. I am a Recipient of a Highly Commended award in 2017 Whanganui Arts Review.
