I’m an experimental multi-media artist, mainly working in abstract techniques. My favourite medium is fluid acrylic.  The intensity of pigments and versality of these paints encourages experimentation. 


My technique is intuitive – I’ll choose the colours and the support, and then the process is very dynamic.  I like my work to be seen in sunlight and I often use interference or reflective paints to create light interplay. 


I've been actively exhibiting since 2012 and my work is held in private collections here and overseas. I am a practicing artist member of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and I have exhibited work in many Academy exhibitions over the years. In 2016 my husband and I held a joint multi-media audio and visual exhibition called 'Join the Club'.  I was a second place prize winner in the 2014 Wellington Emerging Artist Awards, as well as a finalist in the 2012 and 2013 awards.  I was a top 10 finalist in the 2014 Unleash Art Competition.
