This is me and my dog, Teddy, in the field behind my house. A while ago I saw a re-run of ‘The Brady Bunch’ on tv, and they had a dog exactly like mine. Theirs was called Tiger. My dog is more of a Teddy than a Tiger, as you can see.

I work from a straw-bale studio in the middle of a big paddock (or field, if you aren’t a Kiwi) just outside Wellington, New Zealand.

I love to talk to schools, in person or via the internet, and I’m happy to be contacted by students – although sometimes it can take a little time to reply.

Of course, if you just want to listen, not look, you could try this interview on Radio New Zealand National from 2012.
