My work to date has been mainly involved in exploring themes around identity which stemmed from an enquiry into our national identity- what it is to be a New Zealander. Of late though my work has focussed in on a more personal perspective. Some of my paintings look at the role of parenthood and how we are formed and influenced by the actions or inactions of our parents. Others explore identity as it is portrayed, enhanced or altered through beautification by using pattern, Ta Moko or tattoo, make-up and the things we choose to have around us.
