About

I'm a hybrid painter and work across analogue and digital platforms. I sample my drawings, photographs and paintings to create new abstract, biomorphic work. Often the figure-ground relationship is ambiguous. The fast, slippery, hard surface of the iPad is exciting and helps me to work quickly. But I also enjoy the fluidity of paint and the bounce of the brush on a tight canvas. Process and thinking through making are important within my practice. 

I am intrigued by edges, and at the moment I'm exploring the points where urban and rural boundaries meet.

I will graduate with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (major in Painting) from Auckland University of Technology in December 2018.                      

I live in Wellington, NZ.
