my art runs around themes of fighting against consumerism and hedonistic instincts. Birds became a large part of her art as an idea of freedom. The freedom of flight and also their simplicity of life. The themes in my work are put into action in a biographical sense, evoked by personal experiences and thoughts throughout my life.

i also paint murals. my biggest mural project was in Japan on the Yuki Park Zoo. I am currently in the process of developing a mural with the Little River school tamariki for the Little River tennis courts.
I have also just finished a community pop up penguin .which will be included on an art trail around chch and auctioned off next year for charity.
