About me

Hire a Creative Vandal and believe something wonderful is about to happen!


Certainly with the events of 2020, art in all facets has taken on a whole new meaning. I’ve been practicing art since I could draw pictures with sticks in the sand. Photography and moving image has been a passion of mine for many years and since the age of digital simplicity, comes convenience. In an instance, an image can be shared wherever or with whoever you want. 


Wedding photography is capturing the memories that matter and I love being part of the couples' special day. Pulling together the essence of personality for visual story telling is like a show and tell experience. People absorb incredible energy seeing themselves in a story perspective never realized before.


Painting and textile art also lines up with my history as a multi media artist. My works have been exhibited in shows and galleries throughout New Zealand. What keeps me active in the community and business network is providing access to the arts, for those who have limited access. Creative workshops are increasingly popular with home school groups, adult learning, birthday events and now expanding into the corporate sector.


Should you be looking for something different or want to toss some ideas around, lets connect.
