I grew up drawing and creating things, it's in my blood to create and to want to make something beautiful out of nothing.
It wasn't until 2008 that I really took it seriously and started to find my own style, having my first solo exhibition ‘Metamorphosis’ which was a great success. Since then I have gone on to have several exhibitions throughout New Zealand and launch an ever-expanding range, including clothing, jewellery, accessories, prints, stationary, cards, calendars etc.
I have a boutique store in Kamo, Whangarei, as well as an online store that offers worldwide shipping.
After the death of a loved one in 2014, I began hand painting caskets and urns through selected North Island funeral directors. Families can choose from 4 feminine designs, as well as one unisex option now too.
In 2017 I opened Inspire Art School from my premises in Kamo, Whangarei. Classes are available for adults and children aged 5 and over. Through Inspire I have found a passion for teaching individuals to develop their creative thinking and confidence, and encouraging individuality through art.
On a personal level – I have a 18yr old daughter and live in Whangarei, Northland.
