I am a visionary surrealist working with oil on board for many of my works;  also I create mixed media abstracts from using found objects.

About Me

From leaving school I ventured into the world of glass design and construction, gaining the qualification of a New Zealand Flat Glass Trade Certificate.

Having an artistic mindset led me to using the product to create an extensive range of designer glass works over the span of fifteen years.

Following the experience in the glass industry I returned to full time study for five years to gain a Diploma in Architectural Design and a Bachelor Degree in Applied Arts.

Academic study has given me a passion for modern technology. Coupling this passion with an understanding of the ancient product of glass, I am investigating the potential of glass in the sculptural field. Areas of focus at present are light reflection, refraction and projection.

I also enjoy drawing, painting, graphic design and photography.

About Me

Hello! I'm a realist artist mostly, working in soft pastel or oil, sometimes acrylic, or charcoal, plus oil mono-prints when I have a spare moment.

I'm currently living in Wanganui, working daily as a full-time artist, (since 2001). I've been drawing or painting since I could hold a crayon. I have a Diploma (Honours) in Art & Creativity, but really I just practise my skills daily, and study the work of artists I admire. I teach workshops regularly, Summer Schools and Winterschools, plus some evenings and weekends, and travel to teach nationally when I can fit it in.

A growing series of my work is published as prints by the Image Vault, in the NZ stockman genre. From this has been created a set of placemats & coasters by Jasons, available throughout NZ and Australia.

I've won many awards over the years, which is a thrill, but the biggest thrill I get is when I see people really relating to my paintings, and when a pupil really gets what I'm trying to teach - that light-bulb moment!
