I have always been involved with colour and was trained as a “colour matcher “ in my early employment. It was inevitable then that I turned to “Art” as my favourite activity when I finally granted myself the time to enjoy life, when moving to the Bay of Islands.
I am inspired by an image that “touches” me and so I hope to create a painting, which in turn evokes the same emotion in the viewer. My images are usually taken from the natural landscape, flora and fauna and bird life, being an artist who has to “feel” the subject before and during the process of painting it. Some of my works can take months to complete as I work with all shapes and sizes of background, applying great attention to detail in most.
