I spent many years living on the shores of Wainui Beach, Gisborne, on the East Coast of the North Island, New Zealand.

The powerful elements that create the parching hot summers, the sunrises and sunsets of the coastal horizon and the unpredictable winter storms that slash the ocean, always with the backdrop of the distant Urewera ranges; have always been an inspiration both in creating moods and colour that influence my creative processes.

My use of mainly strong colours reflects these elements and the mixed media I choose to use. I enjoy creating varying textures to enhance and exaggerate these themes.
