I am a Wellington-based contemporary artist who spent the first 26 years of my life living in the Andres mountains living in a strong community with a deep connection with the environment. I express myself through many images including barbed wire, pigeon spikes, portraits of pigeons, disenfranchised wild animals. I have particular sympathy for pigeons as they are treated like vermin but are as much a part of the world as humans. I also identify with Wombles. Their community focus and care for the environment is something that I admire. I womble in a variety of ways, often reusing what I find and incorporating it into my art including plastic bags, coffee sacks, dried paint.
