Artist Biography

I am a full time Waikato artist of Tainui descent. Growing up and living in Ngaruawahia, I am surrounded by the majestic Hakarimata ranges and the Waipa and Waikato rivers.

Time spent by the water is important to me and I often visit our beautiful coasts, Raglan is a particular favourite. This natural beauty is a constant source of inspiration.

Art and creativity have always been a passion ,painting in particular. Although self taught, in  2003 I was awarded an Arts Waikato Scholarship (nominated by the Raupatu Lands Trust)  which enabled me to complete a Diploma of Art and Creativity through the Learning Connexion in Wellington. 
I have a diverse range of styles but the strong use of colour is always constant.

Relying on instinct and intuition, paintings often evolve layer by layer. Getting lost in the process is a joy, bold gestural movements are counteracted by the need to put things in order.

Experimenting with different mediums is always a pleasure but I mostly enjoy the immediacy and versatility of acrylic paint. Painting is my absolute joy and I hope to pass that on to the viewer.
