Being nurtured in a household of enthusiastic artists and photographers - family holidays at the most amazing white sand beaches and National Parks - these have been my creative influences.
Working in Auckland city for a time I loved the commercial buzz and was also able to develop my creative side by studying Interior Design at ATI and floristry. Four year ago I followed my desire to paint and studied art and creativity at The Learning Connection, Wellington. Since then I've launched my full time art practice in painting and photography.
My photographs are about exploring and seeking out extraordinary locations along the coastline - of capturing the monochromatic effects of twilight.
My challenge is to find the essence of a scene - looking to simplify and refine the design. My style has been constantly changing and growing which is as it should be - life is always changing - and for the better of course.
You’re welcome to contact me from here. Any questions you may have - I am only too happy to reply to you or if you wish to leave a comment that would be great too.
