I am passionate about life, and art.
My art is a huge part of my life, and huge part of that passion.
I was born in the seaside township of Kawakawa, New Zealand, where I was raised in a farming environment. I have an absolute love of the countryside, and outdoors, and I try to incorporate that love into my work. I also have a love of the ocean, and enjoy painting marine art.
I have been sketching, drawing, and painting for as long as I can remember. I started painting seriously in the early 1980's, firstly painting in oils, and then acrylics.
I migrated to Queensland, Australia in 1986, and in 2003 I discovered the beauty of watercolours and have added them to my portfolio. I now paint in watermedia, graphite, charcoal, pen and ink, and oils.
