Sunset is an artist and children's book illustrator living and working in the Taranaki bush line.   His paintings have featured in Emerging Taranaki Artists and other publications and his work has sold in galleries throughout the North Island. 

For several years, he has been known for beautiful acrylic paintings of rocks, water and shells, exploring the quiet, contemplative mood these inspire.

He recently added oils to his repertoire, painting studies of the beautiful garden he and his partner Kate created on their secluded rural property - their garden featured this year in 'NZ House and Garden' magazine and the 'Powerco Taranaki Garden Spectacular'.

Sunset has illustrated many children's books, including the highly successful Perky the Pukeko and Loveable Lizzie series'.
