Painting Oil, Acrylic, Pastel

I have loved art all my life, enjoying time spent with my father whilst he painted many beautiful New Zealand scenes.  I elarnt a lot from him and have also developed my own use of acrylic paint.

I studied art and classical studies at school.  My love for colours, design and interiors have all come into play giving  me focus to achieve my desire to become an artist.

My love for the New Zealand sea, bush and bird life, influences my art greatly.  As well, having been a dancer in my youth, I use the musical flow and movement when painting , letting the layering and passion develop in my brushwork.

Seeing the pleasure on people's faces as they view my art is one of my greatest enjoyments.
