Welcome - Kia ora
Naturally curious, I was brought up to look, play, make, fail, try again, and above all, appreciate the intrinsic value of art - in all its forms. I was encouraged to think about how art impacts individuals, communities and society. I can't remember a time I didn't make art.
I read widely and write poetry but sometimes words are not enough and that's why visual art has won my heart. Inspired by nature's complexity, mystery and colours, I attempt to express the delicate, ephemeral, dark, profound - the light and dark of life. Basically I'm in a continual state of awe and use art to describe that.
My muses are music and Monty, my dog. They always hang out with me in the studio.
I am a New Zealander and divide my time between Wellington and Auckland.
I draw, take photographs and paint. I'm not confined to one medium and tend to experiment with photography and painting. Painting can be digital or brushes and paint on canvas. Often I combine the three mediums.Original paintings are for sale along with archival quality prints of digitally enhanced photographs and paintings.
Hover over the thumbnail for prices of the original paintings. Postage and packaging is not included but that can be advised at the time of purchase, depending on where you live and when you want the painting..
These are usually printed on 308gsm Hahnemuhle Photo Rag fine art paper.. This is a white, 100% cotton paper with a smooth surface and guarantees archival standards. A4 size prints are $50 + p&p; A3 size prints are $90 + p&p.
I also offer selected paintings as limited edition prints on clear acrylic discs. These are 40cm in diameter. There are 5 in each edition. $250 + p&p.
