I am lucky enough to have worked at the Gallery before. I did volunteer work here prior to my conservation studies in Melbourne, and when I returned to Auckland, I worked as a conservation assistant for a few months. Since then I have returned for projects whenever possible. It has been good to stay in touch.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Whitecliffe, College of Art and Design in Painting. I then went on to the University of Melbourne, where I did my Masters in Conservation of Cultural Materials (Painting) with an internship in Greece. Since then I have worked here at the Gallery, across New Zealand and overseas, both at institutions and privately. It has been a huge advantage to speak several languages as it increases work opportunities.
