About me

Industry Arts
Occupation art indie craft designer recycler
Location Auckland, New Zealand
Introduction I've always made stuff and wanted to be an artist from the age of 14.I made my way to Art School in the late 80s and graduated with a BFA, majoring in Sculpture. After a short exhibiting career,I quickly discovered being a full time artist doesn't pay the bills, so went the commercial route. I've worked in graphic design, audio visual and freelance set design as well as garden design and maintenance.In the mid 90s my boyfriend and I got married at City Hall in Manhattan New York. We eloped actually as no-one knew until we were back home.I have two children, a boy Jasper and a girl Madison,named after Madison Avenue.
