Born in England in 1962, I spent most of my childhood immersed in books. At university I gained degrees in Philosophy and English Literature and taught English for ten years.
Feeling like a change of direction, I decided to explore my other childhood passion - drawing and making things. I studied Visual Arts at Tai Poutini and became a full-time printmaker in 1999.
Now, I live and work at my studio in Riwaka, a small settlement close to the Abel Tasman national park and just five minutes drive from Motueka.
Studio visits are welcome and appreciated. (Please phone ahead to avoid disappointment: 03-528-5135) or you can see my work at the following galleries.
