Biography

I was born in Wanganui and gained a BSc in Chemistry followed by a Diploma of Fine Arts in Painting at the University of Canterbury.
I have exhibited throughout New Zealand in solo and group shows in both public and dealer galleries and have received several awards and grants, most notably the artists to Antarctica Fellowship in 1998.
I have works in private and public collections both here and overseas.
