Isaac Petersen

My work is a culmination of stories from my life, my home, and places I have been.
Since I can remember the ocean and rugged landscape of where I grew up in New Zealand has inspired me to paint landscapes and the sea. These paintings kick started my career as an artist in my early twenties.  Since travel being a part of my adult life, my paintings expanded to capture the ‘story’ of places abroad. In the last few years, I began painting my wife, Erika, as a figure to add depth and connection to a beautiful surrounding, often water.
I hope to leave the viewer with a good feeling. Whether they can relate to my painting with a past experience, or by a fantasy of somewhere they would like to go, my painting should take them there.
