New Zealand artist painting in oil, watercolour and acrylic

Hello, welcome to my art studio.  I am an artist born and living with my family in Waitakere NZ.  I paint in oils, acrylics, and watercolour and have been painting since I was 11 years old (27 years).  I have painted a variety of different artworks including portraits, landscapes, flowers, and I developed a fun style known as Birds in Uniform. 

  I did study a fine arts degree and among many amazing art teachers I had were  Julian Dashper, Richard Fahey, Saskia Leek and Julian Hooper (Unitec, Bachelor of Design majoring in painting 2002 - 2005)

I now do commissioned paintings as well as my own series of paintings I want to explore and extend my skills in.  I also enjoy cleaning up native timber and painting native birds on it so it is valuable again - recently I have been working on a series of 10 paintings on Rimu floorboards from a demolished house.  These floorboards have lots of character and it is a beautiful material to work with.  These are available from Red Peach Gallery, or Otautau Gallery

Thanks for reading, thanks for your kind support and feel free to contact me if you have any questions, I appreciate hearing from you.
