What inspires your art practice?
I draw inspiration from my heritage, rural upbringing and being alive!

What materials do you work in?
Corten steel, bronze, rock

Describe your artwork for NZ Sculpture OnShore 2021
Working with the steel’s natural tendencies, I find forms within the material and draw them out with a raw and natural style to create a sculpture that stands proud and striking in the landscape of this stunning cliff top site.

Art Industry Gallery, Clevedon Village; Public and private collections in Aotearoa; Otakawhe Bay, Waiheke.
