Having been born in the New Zealand high country surrounded by mountains my heart belongs in the hills. My upbringing involved being part of the working station this is where I developed the love of horses, dogs and sheep. I like to portray these early experiences in my art work.
I graduated with an agricultural degree to work in agricultural finance supporting the New Zealand farmers. I then retrained to become a teacher and taught children in rural areas. I received much enjoyment in assisting children in their learning journey. Later I was to relink with my childhood creativity to develop my own art. I continue to develop and challenge my own artistic skills endeavouring to express my life’s experiences through my work.
I am married to Ian with three grown children.
Together we have farmed and run a tourism business where I enjoyed meeting people from all around the world. I hope you enjoy my work as I do.
