I was 18 years old when I was seriously injured in a head-on car accident in Hawke’s Bay, where I was working in a shearing gang. It was Christmas 1980, now with a spinal injury and only a year out of school, I struggled to find a place in the community with the new challenges facing me.

15 years on I discovered sports, playing wheelchair rugby and represented New Zealand in 1998. It was another 10 years before I took up mouth painting. After taking a few art lessons and encouragement from friends I started working with the MFPA.

After many years of working out of my kitchen, I finally had the opportunity to created my own Art studio. Now with the improved work space I hope to develop my skills further. I enjoy painting New Zealand landscapes, Native birds and flowers. Recently I have begun working on portraits, with a plan to paint important New Zealanders in a landscape setting.

I now live in a small town north of Auckland. I have just began working with local Artists and also I plan to join some of the local Art groups and workshops.
