Artist Statement;

Born in Wellington, New Zealand

.
Lives and works in Sydney, Australia / Athens, Greece

 

My works reflects architectural forms which are

grounded in the framework of painting but realised

in the form of sculpture. Working with aluminium

and acrylic paints, I bend, fold, contort and

manipulate my material.
