My art is honest, I want viewers to see raw, unaltered natural beauty, whether a single figure, landscape or seascape. I want my art to communicate a sense of peace, a moment in time, a brief period of calm, a chance to reflect and take in a breath. As a professional graphic designer I understand composition and transfer my skills, bringing a balance to my art.
I have had a love of art since holidaying each year as a child in St Ives, Cornwall. Here, I was lucky enough to experience the variety of subjects and styles of the many artists, and spent many hours watching them create their masterpieces. A move to New Zealand gave me the opportunity to explore my own art, helped very much by the beauty of the land and ocean that now surrounds me.
I believe there is art in all of us!
