I have become attached to using recycled items within some of my art, had some fun trying to create these things. I drink so much v that I felt that this was a good thing to use, so figure!  I did think that the can might cut into you when wearing it, but no such luck so that has to be a good thing right? My next item I plan on making is a t-shirt or dress simply out of the v bottle caps, I have already cut them, so they are ready to use. I tell you it took me ages to cut them all and I still need to collect a hell of a lot more. Yay me, gonna safe the planet!!

My favourite wood block prints, both a4 in size, not very big at all.

They look awesome framed up, sold a few but always have a set hanging up at home.

A friendly mail art trading and swapping website. ATC’s stands for Artist Trading Cards, which are traded and swapped with other artist throughout the world. These tiny pictures are 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size and are created with the intent to trade them only. This is my small but exciting set of cards that I have collected and traded for, which I am very happy to have. You just never know if one of these creations was made by a famous artist or not?  The red head was my very first ATC creation.

Who am I?

Who I am as a person, through life and society, trying to decide who I am amongst it?

What it is to be? What everyone else wants you to be and how to look and act or to be an individual amongst everybody who are all trying to be the same?

I love to create along side a small group of like minded people whom we call  Waitakere Printers Ink.

 An untutored printmaking group who meet once a month on the 3rd Saturday, between 1-4pm, at Corbans Art Centre in Henderson,  Auckland and come together as a group of like minded enthusiasts to share ideas and knowledge, exhibit together, and to print using the large etching press.
