What is your art about?

“It's a brief exploration of the notion of human free-will, the idea that we create our own destiny but within defined constraints, subject to both will and chance. It is also a hymn of praise to Yah Rastafari.”

What was the creative process like?

“Lumpy. I started a work, went quite a long way down it, to realise that it was crap. When I began again it flowed better, and the layers of the work kind of unfolded.”

What inspired you to support the work of Parent to Parent?

“Raising children is always a challenge but having a child with a disability must add all kinds of pressures and stresses to a family. The idea of a network that works with all family members to support them and link them to other people is something I am happy to get behind.”

All proceeds help fund the work of Parent to Parent—supporting families raising Kiwi kids with disabilities for over 30 years. For help or to donate visit
