I was born and raised in Southland and have grown up surrounded by the New Zealand native bush. Although it doesn’t feature in my current body of works, I draw inspiration from it to begin my paintings. Whatever seizes my attention, I paint it. Most of my paintings focus on capturing or alluding to an animal's individual personality, or revealing the intricacies from the environment.

I always hope to be consumed in that moment of creating, where time leaves you and there is an excitement with the process of where the current piece may lead.
