My art covers a broad range of mediums, including sculpture, printmaking, mixed media, and furniture and I typically create one off pieces. I’m passionate about sustainability, so where possible I use reclaimed materials. I believe salvaged materials have an inherent beauty that should be showcased.
In New Zealand, we’re fortunate to have a rich landscape, that is the envy of many. These artworks draw on our diverse landscape and looks at the burden that society has and continues to have on this beautiful part of the world. Our actions today, have far reaching consequences tomorrow! I sought to reflect these contexts in artworks that convey the present and my hopes for positive change in the future.
