Returning home to New Zealand in 1993 from an inspirational and challenging 3 years in Europe, to my love Stewart Gunn we began our family living near the foothills of the Southern Alps in Canterbury. Once Lucy and Fergus were school aged, I returned to my art practice graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree (University of Canterbury) in 2009 and furthered this with a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Teaching; exhibiting in the same year at the Brooke Gifford Gallery along side Bill Hammond.

I will always be an artist. I am inspired in so many ways by the human experience and it feels rewarding to have a growing collection of my work held and treasured in private homes in New Zealand, England, France, Switzerland and many others around the globe.
