Artist Profile

I am currently a student attending a level 3 carpentry course at the Tai Poutini Polytechnic. I've always enjoyed scale modeling as I hobby, I have many assembled and painted many historical, sci-fi and fantasy model kits, I find it very relaxed and calming.

Artist Statement

Before the lockdown I was walking through the middle of Greymouth on High street when I noticed an abandoned store front on the side of the road. I felt attracted to the empty abandoned building sitting right next to the main road in the middle of town. When lockdown began I started multiple projects to keep myself busy, one of which was making a model of the building I had seen, a building seemingly alone in the middle of a town resonated with me while in lockdown.

How I was affected

During the lockdown I started a few projects to keep myself busy, one of which was to try building a scale model of a building from scratch. I haven't made many models from scratch before but it was something I wanted to try.
