“As far back as I can remember I have wanted to paint. “

I just adore colour, strong texture, warmth and the feeling of being drawn into a painting. My influences come from many streams; an angry ocean, soft warm sand, the sun rising through heavy cloud, a clear blue sky. By incorporating these facets into my work I produce abstract and landscape pieces that are striking and at the same time very pleasing to the eye.

I also have a great passion for painting the beauty of the female form.

I have travelled considerably throughout Asia and Europe, loving every minute, all the scenary, customs, food, sights and the ways of the people, however my home and heart lies in the beauty of New Zealand.”
