I am a painter, seeker, adventurer, lover and mother, living the best life I can in New Zealand.
I draw inspiration from my own experiences and feelings, whatever captures my gaze or fertile imagination at any given moment. Whether that is the ocean, feelings I am working through, a book I am reading, something I sees, or the play of light or colour that I happen to notice out of the corner of my eye.
Paint grounds me and acts as my meditation practice in a way that nothing else has achieved and I try to paint every day. I am inspired by Emily Karaka, Frida Kahlo, Picasso, Ralph Hotere and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
I try to remember to live my life and guide my decisions with my core values:
I think that one of the absolute advantages of connecting with people online is discovering that there are other people that are as weird as you, and who fall in love with the same quirky weird things as you. That see a pattern in the street paving and think that would make a cool background or doodle pattern. Or see the way the light glows and glimpse magic.
