Painting the essence of nature. I combine my love of travel and art, painting the beautiful places I visit

My paintings are lovingly collected worldwide, they hang in corporate and private collections including ASB Bank, Bank Of Hawaii, The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, The collection of President and Michelle Obama and The New Zealand Parliament.Favorite subjects are seascapes, garden paintings, landscapes, wild birds and marine life.A contemporary blend of impressionism and realism describes the style of my artwork.I am a multi award-winning artist featured in The New Zealand Artist Magazine and Plein Air Magazine, (USA).The texture of my artwork is achieved by applying multiple layers of paint with brushes and palette knives.I enjoy combining my love for world travel with painting to capture the beautiful scenes in the most amazing places.As an artist ambassador for both The Royal Talens Company and Silverbrush Limited, I teach and paint with the very best materials.
