A potter and gallery owner for 20 years in Australia and NZ, in 2004 I graduated from Wanganui Quay School of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in glass . My graduate work was selected for New and Emerging Glass Artists Australia NZ- Second generation Grace Cochrane Curator and shown at the Ebeltoft Museum in Denmark.

I attended a David Reekie Masterclass 2003 and in 2006 was summer school Technical Assistant for Richard Whitely.

Currently I work as a glass caster from my studio Synergy Glass NZ in Wanganui and was most recently selected for the Looking Glass Exhibition Sarjeant Art Gallery 2009/10, Grace Cochrane Curator.

My exhibition work explores identity issues in geometric/abstract form and is represented by Red Spot Gallery - www.redspotgallery.co.nz
