Who am I?
I am a photographer and printmaker based in Central Otago, New Zealand - I use both traditional printmaking (linoprinting) and photography to portray the natural beauty that surrounds us. My 'happy place' is either behind my camera at dawn or dusk; chasing birds with a long lens; or in the studio drawing and carving.
Both photography and printmaking require an engagement with the subject. My printmaking process is traditional - starting with a drawing I determine how ink will be applied to the final block, invert the image, carve, check, carve, check and finally print. I always use archival inks and papers.
By day I am an entrepreneur bringing order and safety to food systems. While this is quite different to my artist endeavours it does certainly require a lot of creativity (for problem solving) and observation and attention to detail.
My artwork and photography can be found in private collections throughout NZ, in Australia, the UK, the US and China.
