I create contemporary abstract paintings inspired by our beautiful wild landscape here on the west coast. I choose rich colours, texture and layers to recreate and share the sense of freedom, space and connection I feel when I am outdoors. My work explores areas in nature that undergo transition and change like weather, seasons and tides - each has its own mood and contrast to experience. Its these differences, changes and shifts that make art and life interesting. Art, like our beautiful region, should be experienced, and I hope to encourage viewers of my work to take a moment, to pause, and give themselves a little time just for themselves to sink into a painting and connect with what makes them feel alive. I exhibit at the Gables Gallery in Pukekura Park, Gover Street Gallery, and annually at the Art Cafe, and have a permanent display of work for sale in Pikopiko Eatery on Mangorei Road. I'm looking forward to welcoming visitors to my home studio, having a chat, and letting you take the time to relax and look around and enjoy the experience.
