I grew up on a farm just out of Stratford. I learnt to ride a motorbike at the age of 8, and was milking cows by the age of 10.
I loved the work and and being part of a team. I am happiest in my gumboots and Taranaki will always be home.
However, at the age of 18 I left to follow my other great passion in life, photography!
I am now back having completed a Bachelor of Applied Arts (Visual Arts and Design) in 2016, to the place I love the most - Stratford!
I am the Gallery Assistant at Percy Thomson Gallery in Stratford, so you have probably seen me around.
Looking forward to meeting all my visitors on the Taranaki Arts Trail
