I am a London based artist originally from New Zealand. I spent many years working in the IT industry when I decided to formalise my interest in making art by undertaking a BA (Hons) Fine Art degree in Painting at the University of Arts London. I graduated from the Wimbledon College of Arts in 2014 and in 2021 completed a Masters of Research in Art: Theory and Philosophy at Central Saint Martins (UAL).
My practice combines photography, digital art, collage, painting and writing. I am interested in ideas surrounding the fragment such as absence, juxtaposition, interconnectedness and transformation. I see patterns and rhythms in the processes that I use, the marks that I make and the words that I carve out and assemble.
My subject matter can vary, but tends to focus on the ordinary, the overlooked and the mundane. The trappings of everyday, fleeting, ephemeral, seen out of the corner of one’s eye, texture, beauty and ugliness packed together in a kind of natural collage.
I try to convey a sense of flux, of a perpetual ebb and flow between the abstract and the figurative, reality and the imagination to create numerous points of departure.
