Welcome to my graphic design and photography studio. I am a professional, award-winning and experienced graphic designer and photographer based in Paekakariki, Kapiti Coast, Wellington.


Please do take a good look around, learn about what I do and how I work. Reach out and let’s chat about how we can work together to best communicate your project’s uniqueness with compelling, clear, authentic and effective visual communication.



Graphic Designer

Brand, print, editorial, exhibition and digital

I have been enjoying working in the field of visual communication for over 20 years, based in both New Zealand and New York. Before setting up my own business, I worked for several years as a Creative Director, tutor and Senior Designer at the College of Creative Arts Wellington. I now enjoy designing a full range of visual outputs for my clients, including naming, brand, print (I love good paper!), digital and exhibition.




Visualising your brand, portrait, documentary and fine art photography

Photography makes my heart sing. I have had a camera in my hands since childhood, and fondly remember when my parents gifted me my first film SLR camera when I moved to France at age 21. I love to photograph a wide variety of subject matter alongside my personal fine-art and documentary projects. All of which keep me forever with a camera in my hands.



Be in touch, I’d love to hear from you

Let’s chat about your project and how we can best work together to bring your visual communication to a highly polished and captivating space!

Thank you Jane Goodall.

Featured Story — The Jane Goodall Institute of New Zealand asked me again to support them in photographing some of Dr Jane Goodall’s visit to New Zealand. It sure feels good to photograph events and people that mean a lot to me. Putting my skills to use in the arena of Effecting-Positive-Change.
