I have been painting and creating for over 40 years. Living adjacent to Goldie Bush at Muriwai Beach, Auckland, New Zealand my work arises in response to events or experiences in the great outdoors. I have an affinity to the land and our native forest. This is my world.
I delight in mark making and discovery in a work as well as using colour to create a mood in order to arrest the viewer and draw them in.
More information about the genesis of each series of work can be found within the Gallery.
