Bio pic 1_edited.jpg

I am a New Zealand born artist who has lived in the UK for 20 years with my practice based in South Manchester .

 

I am a figurative and portrait artist who's themes circulate around the light and dark of life.

​Through my work I strive to challenge myself and push my own boundaries while retaining honesty and rawness through the narrative.

Expression through paint is therapy and gives me the freedom to tell mine and others stories.

I have exhibited in London, Liverpool,Manchester and New Zealand.
