Welcome - Kia ora
Every painting is a voyage into a sacred harbour
Giotto di Bondone
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 or wander around in art galleries. I believe that art enriches our souls.
I love reading and writing, 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 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 don't confine myself to one medium but tend to use drawing, photography and painting as part of my process. Painting can be digital or brushes and paint on canvas.
