Inspired by the amazing colours of nature
My art is inspired by the natural environment and I have used oils and/or acrylics to create an eclectic mix of original paintings on canvas in my home based studio. My painting reflect my interpretation of the natural world and are painted to an aesthetic realism capturing the New Zealand landscape in works of scenic contrast.
I am a self taught artist and an active observer of my surroundings, constantly aware of the effects of the changing light on the enviroment and this is what I try to capture in my landscape paintings.
My art is not challenging to the viewer but offers relief in that there is nothing sought but an appreciation of the painterly nature of the work which is visually balanced and invites the observer into the painting rather than letting the painting reach out in all directions.
