My grandfather and father both painted. I painted from a very early age and finally had lessons when I was 30. I lived in the Bay of Plenty for several years and then moved to Nelson as a botanist with the Department of Conservation. I currently paint as a leisure activity.
My world is strongly visual, full of amazing shapes which need to be captured in paint: hills, plants, humans, structures. I try to simplify and strengthen them, before adding colour.
My paintings have gone to buyers in Scotland, USA, Australia and many parts of NZ.
