A painter working in both illustration and abstraction, my work focuses primarily on environment, reflecting on ecological systems and setting. My imagined landscapes and architectural interiors, rather than focusing on the represenation of a physical space, stem from my consideration of spatial dynamics and the way in which we experience space. My compositions are often derived from the morphology of architecture, geology and organic matter, and are painted using a variety of materials and techniques, including the traditional technique of glazing.

Born in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, I called the steppe climate of Boise, Idaho home for my first twelve years. After a brief stay in Utah, I moved with my family at the age of fourteen to Wellington, New Zealand, where I attended Wellington Girls' College before relocating to Auckland to obtain my Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland.
