An SCA graduate, collaborated with Galleryeight, designed for TMOD, illustrated for The Big Smoke and worked with clients creating children’s books and collectable cards.
My childhood growing up in Fiji often influences the art I make today, particularly with themes of nature and surreal imagination. My art style is quite fluid, taking form as I grow though the subjects of my work are often women, and the subject matter – the relation of people to nature. I’m influenced by books and graphic novels, Shaun Tan, Neil Gaiman, natural science, other contemporary artists and of course, the world around me.
I like to think of my illustrations as an extension of my vocabulary; a way for me to communicate and reach out to others.
