"While in New Zealand, I intend to produce works which reflect the unique nature and colours of the landscape. I hope that the change in environment from the local, and arid South Australian setting to the lush surroundings of The New Zealand Pacific Studio will influence a new direction and colour palette in my practice... and provide me with the chance to produce a
collection of loose and experimental works... I am interested in pursuing life
drawing in the studio, making en plein air studies, and using those studies to incorporate the figure in landscape."
