In a world increasingly fragmented, chaotic and noisy, my paintings are a manifestation of my quest for a simpler, quieter meditation on life, and pay homage to the modest overlooked objects and landscapes in our lives.

I have always been interested in the conceptualisation of the everyday in painting, because I love the myriad of detail, colour, pattern, form and light that we live amongst and remain largely oblivious to. My paintings, I hope, encourage introspection, recognition, and at the very best, the opening of the eyes of the viewer to the incidental beauty in his or her own life.

I was born in Wellington in 1994.  I spent three years doing Painting at the Dunedin School of Art, completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2015.
 

I was fortunate to receive the 2015 Feldspar Scholarship and the 2015 Webb Farry Award for drawing. As well as painting and growing flowers, I also teach life drawing at the Dunedin School of Art night classes.
