I am a professional artist based in Tairua. New Zealand.
Born and raised in Aotearoa. Living in Tairua (Coromandel Peninsula).
I am drawn to painting themes strongly associated with different cultures, particularly Maori & Pacifica, (I had very strong varied cultural influences growing up), along with sun, surf, nature. I found the koru was a prominent feature that emerged in almost all my paintings. It became my feature symbol in most of my artworks, along with strong ‘ocean’ themes, which evolved into oceanic creatures, especially since moving to the beach.
Inspiration is all around me, I literally breathe it in on a daily basis. I am constantly inspired by the majestic mountains to the west and the wild surf beach to the east. “My art has developed and evolved immensely, with a somewhat ‘other worldly’ feel to it…at first it was totally experimental both in expression and technically, now it is certainly still very experimental, (I love being in the moment, no planning and just seeing what evolves on the canvas), but I have developed a certain style that seems to appear, whether consciously or not.
My work varies, sometimes mixed media, sometimes acrylic, I like to experiment with no rules or limits. Im not interested in what is ‘accepted’ in the art world. Im interested in walking my own path, all whilst staying open and vulnerable, knowing that this is an every changing, growing evolving experience every single day. My art is constantly evolving along with myself, I am forever stretching myself, taking risks, trying new themes and techniques.
