I live on the West Coast of South Taranaki in a small village called Ohawe. This has always been a great source of inspiration for me. Our property backs onto the Waingongoro River, where there is an endless supply of sea, rural and river views, in an ever-changing landscape.
I am a mixed media artist and painter, experimenting with recycled materials, paints, pastels and anything that catches my eye. Op shopping is a daily outing where treasures are found for future work. I tend to be very eclectic with my styles, switching from one project to another. Often having several pieces on the go. My latest works were made from old Agee screw tops, I ended up with hundreds.
I am about to start a new series which involves unusually shaped pieces of driftwood that will be created into hand-painted futuristic sea creatures.
