I create sculptural textile works that draw on research into alternate histories, storytelling, textiles and architecture. Most recently my work has been informed by the histories of women who were over looked or under represented in the traditional archive. As well as the idea of biography, the histories of architecture, textiles and a broader social context are also integral to the my work. With a focus on the tactile and the domestic and through engaging in a conversational research process I am offering an alternative approach to that of a traditional historian and one that stresses affect, emotion and feeling.

I completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) at the University of Canterbury in 2002 and a Master of Fine Art from the Glasgow School of Art in 2010. In 2006, I graduated from the College of Education with a Post Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning. In 2017 I relocated back to New Zealand and I began teaching part-time in the Sculpture Department at Ilam School of Fine Arts.

I currently live and work in Christchurch, New Zealand.
