I am an artist of New Zealand Māori and Jèrriais descent, currently living and working in Vienna, Austria.
My work is primarily photography and film based, with an over riding painterly feel. I completed my BA Fine Art: Painting at Camberwell College of Art in 2007, and fine art history practise has a place within my art making. My Masters in Maori Visual Art ( Massey University, NZ: 2012) has driven me to bring my indigenous tribal narratives from Aotearoa (New Zealand) and the experiences of my rural Jèrriais upbringing in the Channel Islands into my artwork.
In addition to my art practice, I am an adult educator, excellent gluten free baker and knowledgeable forager; regular 5km runner and enthusiastic cyclist. I enjoy taking my children and dog on adventures in the footsteps of Enid Blyton’s “Famous Five” and am known to rustle up water-side and forest snack-packs with the aid of my trusty leatherman.
