I paint in acrylics and am inspired by the beauty of our environment and the wonderful people around me. I paint mostly landscapes, birds and animals.
I put a real spiders web somewhere on my canvas because when you look at a web it's a fantastic piece of art that the spider's engineer. The web has now become a signature mark on my paintings.
On visiting Te Papa approximately 8 years ago I got great inspiration from some of the wonderful art there. I arrived home, bought brush and canvas and got to work. I didn't know what I was capable of until I tried. I believe that everyone has hidden talents, it's just a matter of discovering them.
