I have a Bachelor of Arts (English), Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) and a Graduate Diploma of Teaching.
I have taught Art and English in New Zealand, Taiwan, Germany and Australia. I was Teacher in Charge of Photography at Logan Park High School in Dunedin, New Zealand.
I have also worked for the Department of Culture and the Arts (Western Australian government) in the area of arts education.
My artwork has been exhibited in New Zealand, Japan and Italy, and my poetry has appeared in NZ literary magazines.
I am currently working on a young adult novel and several picture book projects.
My picture book I Would Dangle the Moon is being released by MidnightSun Publishing in June 2019.
