About Me

I am currently resident in Invercargill. I moved here in March 2011 to tutor visual arts at SIT. Previous to this I was the Manager/Curator of the Ashburton Public Art Gallery (for six years). I completed  my BFA and MFA at the Otago School of Art, (Dunedin being my home town), and was involved with Gallery projects - Satellite Gallery and later Introspect Contemporary Art Space. I am really enjoying Invercargill and am happy to be back down South! The highlights of my time at SIT so far have been getting the Transition Gallery in the SIT Arcade back up and running and teaching professional practices to students across all levels - Foundation, Certificate and Degree. The tutors here in our department are also passionate about their work and  we are fortunate to be supported by the wider staff in what we do.

About Me

My wife Raylene and I are both creatively involved in our 'arts'. We both enjoy the creative processes,Raylene wih her fabrics,and yes doing some stunning'stuff' with acrylicsand has recently started watercolours and has taken to this like a duck to water. She has never painted until 6 months ago .

I am retired now and  am really involved with my painting . Am loving it ! Having the time to 'do stuff' is pretty special  and exciting. 


In which area of visual arts are you involved?

I enjoy creating art ;absolutely! I am fond of using oils and watercolours and now with more time to paint and create , my intention is to really 'get into it'. I have a great love of the outdoors ,the moods and conditions , the atmosphere and the sensations of light in its infinite arrays.

I believe that we live in the most artistically exciting part of the world .Recording it is a privilege and sharing it is an absolute pleasure. I am excited about the future.

I currently run Fusion Gallery and Studio in Lumsden and am the Chair person for the Northern Southland Creative Arts Inc. We are a newly formed group aimed to support and encourage particapation in the arts in what ever form that may be. I personally have a unusual style of art that i have never come across which makes me feel very unique. I hope to continue to exhibit in Southland and New Zealand and perhaps even Internationally one day! (UPDATE! i am about to paticipate in an international exhibition art exchange with The Women artists of new River Valley in Virginia. A great opportunity!)
