Painting Sculpture

I have been drawing and painting from memory since I was four years old. My father taught me to draw as a tool to learn reading and writing.

I have experimented with all manners of paints, dyes, stains, other mediums, metal and timber looking for ways to express my experiences of life and the world. Hence line, colour, texture, abstraction and sculpture are all tools for my creative expression

I am largely self taught but where needed, as with my print making, I am grateful for the sharing of technique and knowledge of Perry Davies, and more recently, Dan Weldon at the University of Long Island, New York at a Masters in Art workshop.

My work can be viewed at my gallery, Lakehouse Studio. Just phone for an appointment.

I love taking old pieces of wood, looking for beautiful images within, and making carvings and sculpture.

I've been carving from the age of 7 years. A mallet, chisel, a piece of kauri, an old Chelsea Sugar Factory beam or an old Totara post makes me happy. I look for beauty and I am motivated by love.

I welcome you to come and see waka, fanciful sea creatures and mermaids.

During KOAST this year you'll find me at  my studio  and at The Art Place.

Looking forward to seeing you.

I originally studied Textiles & Fashion in England where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree.  I think in colours, shapes and textures.  Carving stone is about what you leave, which is quite the opposite to many other arts where you are usually forming things together. You never know what maybe hidden in the stone –sometimes shells, hard quartz or soft pumice, so the stone will always dictate what you can do.

I like to capture an intimacy within my stone carvings.  It's a challenge to create something soft & curvy looking from something hard & jagged. Latest works include Celtic inspired designs & ferns.

I have a small studio you are welcome to visit by arrangement.  Lessons on stone carving & commissions undertaken.
