My work is fuelled by nature and New Zealand’s unique landscapes and the connections New Zealanders have with the land.
I now live and work in Wellington’s eastern suburbs and the original, distinctive and recognisable paintings I produce reflect the landscapes around my home and studio.
I believe that art expands the soul and creates connection and collective well-being. I apply this philosophy by observing and drawing every day, in order to understand the pattern, rhythm and colour of the things and places around me. I compose pictures that tell a story.
Conservation of the natural world is important to me. I represent plants and birds and animals in my paintings. Through my artistic collaborations I support local conservation groups to protect and restore native habitats.
My original works are executed in gouache paint and oil pastel on cotton rag paper. Prints of this work are Giclee printed on etching paper and are light-fast. My work is exhibited regularly throughout New Zealand and hangs in collections here, and overseas.
