I’m a NZ born artist based at Mt Maunganui.   I love to paint original artwork and create digital sketches.

My background is in advertising and marketing.  I originally trained in Auckland and transferrable skills took me to work in London and Italy.

I’ve won and been highly placed in many art competitions and awards.  In my earlier design business I won a major business award and was featured in magazines.   I’ve designed Happy Meal toy collections for McDonalds International and supplied the Warehouse with large toy ranges and other national houseware chains with continuous print fabrics made in to 30+ products.

Many of my current paintings are joyful floral or scenic, life and times inspired.   Others are large and abstracted.   These tend to be loved by owners of large contemporary walls.

With decades of work behind me, my artworks are all over the place.  They are hung in wineries, venues, foyers, board rooms and of course amazing houses..  Many in Sydney, some in New York, I even painted the walls of a cafe in Fiji.    My art knows more people than I do!

I can be found in my Central Mount studio by appointment.  I’m happy to sell direct, or else meet for a chat about art and all things creative.
