Welcome to my art website

Welcome!

 
I am a Northland artist who has been painting for over 10 years.


Having originally painted in acrylics I now prefer oils due to their  easy working consistency and slow drying ability. My work up to now has been mainly figurative for which I won two Telecom Art  Awards- "Fishing With Dad" and "Northland Kai" both of which adorned the phone book covers 2007/8 and 2009/10.


I have an intense passion for colour and  also how the light in a painting can transform it. In my paintings I try to capture the contrasts between light and dark. 

Lately New Zealand birds have become my focus as I  love the amazing colours which can be discovered on them in the correct light.

I have sold many artworks in New Zealand galleries , some of which have gone overseas.
