I have always taken an interest in art, constantly drawing as a young child and taking as many art based classes as possible throughout high school.
I began tattooing in Auckland, New Zealand, in 2010. After a couple of years I moved to London, UK, and started working in a well known private studio where I began focusing on black and grey realism, particularly portrait work.
Spending five years in the UK was a great learning experience, working alongside fantastic artists from all over the world at European conventions and other studios as a guest artist.
Now, back in New Zealand, I am very excited to be a part of the team of highly talented artists at Ship Shape Tattoo. I welcome black and grey realism with a preference for large scale portrait work.
