After five years at the University of Canterbury the last year has been about figuring out the next steps to take as an Artist. In the last months a studio space has come together in what was once my Dad's workshop. The recent delivery of a customised printmaking press has has also meant I could get on and print the many woodblocks I had carved in the wait. These are the first works to be extracted in the new set up.

Alongside my practise as an Artist I have also been working part time as a 24/7 Youth Worker at Lincoln High School with any other spare time being dedicated mostly to fishing.

I would especially like to thank:

My family, for their ongoing support.

Neil, Maggie and Joseph Morrison, without whose help the studio would not have happened.

Edward Snowdon of Manuka Machines

Joe Schroeder for the fishing tips!
