"I am at the happy stage of life where most days I am free to make paintings or take photographs.
My art-making is from the people, things or places I feel an attachment to. A kind of social urban landscape to landscapes in general.
My art life bio in very few words:
I have been casually drawing and taking photos from childhood to mid-thirties. I began painting seriously (consciously making art) in my mid thirties (around 1987). Around the new millennium I returned to photography as an art medium. Recently I have returned to painting and have been using photographs as a tool in my painting process.
In my early painting years I had several solo shows in the Leslie Kriesler Gallery in New Plymouth and featured in the Govett Brewster Taranaki reviews. Recently paintings have been selling at the New Zealand Art Show in Wellington.
I am currently painting landscapes and seascapes."
