Maker of things;
for Film, creative commission & Everyday Assignment
wellington, new zealand
I am a Designer, a Maker & an Artist. I work in film and for independent clients in Wellington, New Zealand.
My work thus far has involved Concept Design, Set & Props, Costuming, Illustration, Installations & Graphic Design. I also relish any opportunity to exhibit my own artwork.
I am a Designer who brings a practical view to fabrication and a relentless drive to research. I spend most of my time in the workshop, where I actively integrate traditional craft methodologies with digital fabrication techniques.
Within my work, I draw a level of playfulness from the mundane. I create immersive worlds of greenery, vivid colour and wandering lines. Most often, my work, in whichever form it takes, explores abstracted and unknown places, sparked from strange botanicals and obscure normalities. Through different rules, regulations, systems and processes, I communicate stories of unknown places, which translate beautifully into convincing environments, whether two or three-dimensional.
I have a Bachelor of Design (major: Spatial) from AUT University, which included an exchange to the University of North Carolina, followed by a Certificate in Small Business Management. If you are interested in discussing a project, or simply saying hi, I would love for you to connect through,
