From early childhood I wanted to do art. But my parents insisted on a 'proper job', so I studied hard and qualified in law. For 15 years I worked as a government lawyer, keeping sane by creating, exhibiting and selling art on the side, my inspiration fed by weekends in the high country of Central New Zealand.

My father died of leukaemia. I was faced with staying where my work was, or moving with no job into the country - our 10 acre block adjacent to a reserve of untouched bush had also been one of my inspirations for years.

The decision was not a hard one to make - the hard part came after.

For a while I had a small business in graphic design in our local small town, but my mother's failing health finally made that an impossibility. Like it or not, for the next 10 years I became an Alzheimers caregiver, freelancing in graphics and webdesign on the Internet to keep my contacts with the world.

Now my main purpose is to concentrate on the artwork I have always wanted to do. My portal website is at See also:
