About

A little about me

I distinctly remember my 6th form art teacher telling me to stick to design, she was more a "throw it at the canvas" kind of art fan and didn't like my obsession with details. My confidence was shattered and I didn't pick up a pencil for over 20 years... I regret that continually.

So a number of years ago I decided to pick up a couple of canvases and just have a go. I listed them for sale and both sold within 3 hours of listing, I was encouraged and have continued my art journey exploring different mediums and refining my style, but like every artist, I'm a work in progress.

I work from my home in the Manuwatu region of New Zealand, where our beautiful surroundings inspire me daily. I get inspiration from nature - our native birds are my main source of artistic mojo and I endeavour to bring them to life on canvas through a variety of mediums. While I am particularly drawn to nature and specialise in birds, I also delve into portraiture of animals and people.

My artworks and have sold to collectors in Italy, the USA, Australia, Canada, the UK and throughout New Zealand.
I'm a self-taught artist and have been featured in The NZ Artist Magazine and my piece "Pretty Boy" won the Supreme Award at the FADAS Art Awards 2018.

Lastly thank you for the interest in my work, I appreciate the time you've taken and hope you'll come back regularly to see updates.
