My inspiration is the beauty of a moment as light touches a subject, causing me to pause. A piece of foliage changes from a dull grey to a luminous green in an instant with the sun. This power of transformation is my muse...
My work has evolved into a style where I create my own version of the nature that surrounds my Papamoa home.
"As I paint I see the canvas as a place of contemplation. The endless mixes of colours that present themselves in the work are like the colours dappled sunlight drops into nature. Making new combinations with every change of the light"
I love to use bold, vibrant, translucent colours which set my work apart. Subjects while still recognizable, become abstracted versions of themselves, often the imperfections in nature are what make a subject interesting to me and this is reflected in my work.
Since beginning to paint full time in 2014 I have been involved in many group and solo exhibitions. I have also created commissioned pieces, working with the buyers to come up with a personalized painting to suit their requirements. I have enjoyed seeing my work find homes throughout New Zealand and overseas.
Currently a range of my work is on display at Macandmor Gallery in Tauranga.
