As a recient graduate of my Bachelor of Media Arts at Wintec I am now gathering resources to start a Mobile Arts and Puppetry studio and educational workshop for child and adult art education.

I have been involved in puppetry, in school puppetry performances and education for over 10 years, including the Bay of Plenty's Schools Road Safety Campaign with Dan Martin of Puppet Vision Tauranga.

It is my desire to travel to areas and communities that would not otherwise have the resources or the opportunities to explore their creative potential in graphic and visual arts also incorporating elements of performance and social education.

My experience includes running and being on a committee for a Christian Children's Camp, running and involvement in children's holiday programmes, itinerant performances in schools in the Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Auckland areas, and connections and collaborations with several estabilished community organisations within New Zealand.

I would love to take my love of these art forms to others and help build the confidence and skills of the next generation of NZ visual artists.
