I’m a full-time artist from Tahekeroa – a rural area North of Auckland. I am lucky to be surrounded by native bush and the beautiful birds of New Zealand, which definitely inspired my love of painting all things nature.
My art style has been quite a journey, starting with pen and pencil and just a hint of colour and very fine, detailed work, sometimes adding a little scene or touch of whimsy within my drawing.
After experimenting with different mediums, acrylic paint became a firm favourite and with this came experimenting with colours and shapes and my love of abstract art.
I feel a freedom with this style where I can add shapes, patterns and textures and enjoy how each viewer sees something different in the same painting.
