I just love Taranaki!! There are a few places in New Zealand that can inspire you to paint as much as this beautiful part of New Zealand. It's not hard to find scenery that you just have to put down on canvas. I have been painting full time in Taranaki for the last 8 years or so. I paint in oils which gives me plenty of time to blend my colours as well as giving fantastic texture and vibrant colours. Of course our gorgeous mountain is a favourite subject to paint, and I never get sick of painting it in it’s different shape and snow patterns. Beaches and surf is equally enjoyable to paint. I particularly enjoy painting the drama that waves create as they crash into our coastline. I love the lifestyle of being a full-time artist and the pleasure I give others in being able to showcase our beautiful region.
