I completed my Degree in Te Maunga kura Toi in 2013 after three previous years, studying under Bibbins Tangitu, in Tauranga Moana. I am now living in the Coromandel where the landscapes inspire work reflecting the constantly changing vistas. I was born in South Auckland in a farming community where I learnt the values of living on the beautiful whenua that I had the privilege to grow up on. I am now looking forward to creating new works from home, now study is completed.
