About

Originally from New Zealand, I first trained in textile design establishing my career around fashion and fabric art.
Although I am a self taught artist, I did study the old masters traditional techniques of building up depth with layers of transparent and opaque paint and glazing, this has given me a good foundation for any expression. My paintings range from atmospheric landscape to spontaneous abstracts, thus allowing for creative freedom to explore texture and colour application. I use high quality oils on Belgian linen or Italian wood panels, all paintings are signed and varnished with stainless steel wire.
Inspiration is everywhere, my emotional response to the subject is the motivation behind the next painting, could be any thing that feels special enough.
