Hello, welcome to my website.  I hope you enjoy browsing my art collection.  I am an artist born and living with my family in Waitakere NZ.  I mainly paint in oils and have been painting since I was 11 years old.  I have painted a variety of different artworks including portraits, landscapes and flowers, however my most enjoyed style has been a series known as Birds in Uniform.  I currently make canvas prints of them,  and I am adding to the collection with new original paintings - my latest being the NZ Tui Musician which I recently painted over the lockdown.  

  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)

  The newspaper clipping you can see here is from 2009 - when I first showed the Birds in Uniform.  I am now older (38) and I have a beautiful daughter keeping me busy.  Between then and now I have worked as a flight attendant in Abu Dhabi (I spent my free time visiting art galleries), and an illustrator here in Auckland. I also have had another art exhibition for Birds in Uniform, and been involved in various art projects.  My family are my inspiration and my daughter is my biggest fan (in her own words she is a better artist than me 'mummy I am a better artist than you'  - which I agree, kids are the best artists)

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

I am so grateful to all my childhood art teachers, family, friends and collectors of my paintings when I was younger and today.  Thanks to them for their encouragement, support and kindness - I really appreciate their efforts
