I am a married mother of three and fortunate enough to live in sunny Nelson,<br />

South Island in New Zealand. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual<br />

Arts and Design in 2010. I have sketched for as long as I can remember, I find<br />

it a nice break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I was introduced<br />

to screen printing in Art School and use this process in my art practice as<br />

well as teaching printing techniques from my home studio. Screen printing<br />

has become a tool for me to push my work further and extend beyond the<br />

confinements of drawing. I have exhibited, curated and tutored in the Nelson<br />

Bays region, winning and being selected for many local art awards.<br />
