Using colour combinations of soft grey and charcoal I partially obscure layers of red and yellow beneath - revealing snatches of light catching the sand.

The Elements

My abstracted landscapes paintings are about capturing the atmosphere - bringing to life those things like fresh salty air charged with energy after a storm or the sound of water streaming over rocks.

Lifestyle and Landmarks

I find my inspiration from imagining the story behind a place - triggering memories of good times had at a beach or a picnic in the park. I especially enjoyed featuring the Auckland Harbour with it's sea walls and scenes of Yatching Regatta's showing off bright sails and flags.

Photographing the beautiful New Zealand coastline has not only been an inspirational resource but a great adventure.

About Me

My background in interior design, floristry and photography has developed into a full time art practice. Over the last four years I'm proud to have exhibited my award winning paintings around Auckland.
