I create evocative, contemporary paintings venturing into the natural world and continue a little beyond it, into abstraction and impressionism.
As a child, I inhabited an imaginary world that I explored through drawing, painting and designing. While I'm mostly "all grown up" now, I remain passionate about rediscovering and depicting our natural landscape but with a nod to those places we see only in our minds. My paintings are atmospheric and often moody, yet calming and tranquil, too. They carry the memories and emotions held close to the heart.
Much of my work is not geographically specific, focusing instead on capturing a feeling or a particular quality of light. Regardless of where we live, or the skies and terrain that envelop us, we share many desires; love, peace, connection, fulfilment. And many of us aim to bring joy and beauty into our lives through art. This shared yearning for uplifting, harmonious artworks has carried my paintings into homes around the world, as well as onto walls here in New Zealand.
I am also happy to discuss commissions and to work on 'geographically identifiable' art pieces.
ARTWORK IN THE SPOTLIGHT
When The Clouds Roll Over
Have you spotted the cows and the sheep grazing so happily on the distant hills? They are surrounded by pasture rich and flourishing and the hills are alive under a dramatic sky.
I painted this artwork largely from my imagination which has been influenced by my surroundings and emotions. It was a pleasure bringing a scene in my mind to life.
Size: 78cm x 78cm
Acrylic on canvas framed with light wood tray frame. Contact me if you would like more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
