Having graduated from Elam School of Fine Arts last year, she has exhibited her paintings in Matakana’s Vivian Art Gallery, Sanderson Gallery in Auckland, and worked at Paris Fashion Week alongside Kiwi fashion consultant Jo Knight.
The NZQA Top Scholar Awards were presented at the Grand Hall of Parliament on Wednesday (2 May). The prestigious awards recognise the top students from the 2017 New Zealand Scholarship examinations.
