| Contemporary New Zealand Artist |
I am a New Zealand artist working across fine arts, architecture, and urban design (at Studio Pacific Architecture Wellington). My cross-disciplinary background in urban regeneration and public space design brings a fresh approach to my interests in contemporary painting and public installation.
I am represented by Foenander Galleries (Auckland) as a painter of ‘constructed’ surreal landscape settings where my works explore how people attribute value to the ‘natural environment’, and how we decide what is the ‘vernacular landscape’ in a postcolonial context.
