Info

The works I produce are concerned with a number of themes, which are part of a continuing body of work that questions notions of materiality and surface, (physical concerns), as well as more formal and conceptual ideas.

The underpinning drive to create is connected to my ongoing interest in the themes of nationalism & national identity, ideologies, commodification, consumerism and our individual position within the context of a globalised world.

The work is an ongoing attempt to question and perhaps confront these issues. The ambiguities inherent in different ideologies are a continuing source of ideas, both visual and theoretical, and I believe are evident within the work.

I have been involved in a number of successful exhibitions, both commercially and critically in NZ and the UK. These include being a finalist in both the ‘COCA Anthony Harper Contemporary Art Award 2009’, the ‘Trust Waikato National Contemporary Art Award 2008’ and curating ‘Art-on-the-edge - Memory’ 2010, UK.

I have work in a number of private collections in the UK, France, NZ & Australia as well as work in the public collection of the Waikato Museum and Art Gallery in New Zealand. I also have a number of collectors and patrons of my work and have completed a number of private commissions for individual clients. My work is currently being supported and promoted in UK and New Zealand based galleries

I am currently based in New Zealand.
