Fascinated by the abstraction of maps from the ground that they represent, I set out from New Zealand in 1997 for some field work and discovery. It has been a long trip from the kiwifruit vines and rivers of my upbringing to the art and culture of Europe. I am now back in a rural setting at Farm Art.
