In addition, I was a selected finalist in the New Zealand Portrait Award in the 2006 and I also won the Drawing category of the Molly Morpeth Canaday Art Awards (NZ) in the same year.

Influential artists and artworks include Lucian Freud, Max Beckmann, Dega's monotypes and the photographs of Karl Blossfeldt and August Sander.
