about me

I am a painter and freelance designer living in the country on the outskirts of Levin with my partner, novelist Carole Brungar. Our three children fled home long ago.
My qualifications are in graphic design/illustration and secondary teaching, and I have taught visual arts and graphic design at both tertiary and secondary levels.
I draw, and paint in watercolours & acrylics; my passion for the NZ outdoors results in my subject matter featuring the topography & ‘moods’ of this environment.
Any spare time is spent enjoying outdoor adventures, or just chilling with some good music.
I welcome general, workshop or commissions enquiries...just get in touch!


All works are on Arches 180gsm acid-free paper using colour-fast artists grade watercolour paints
Works marked • are available through Exhibitions Gallery

painting & drawing workshops

Always wanted to learn how to draw, use watercolours or acrylics? Do you need some help to get to the next level?
Spend a relaxing day or weekend learning to draw, paint and create your own masterpiece.
I teach individuals, small and large groups. I also teach through art societies and Studio On The Square in Palmerston North.
Whether you are serious about your painting ambitions, or just want to spend a day having fun and learning a new hobby, I cater to all abilities.
I am happy to travel and to assist with finding a venue.
Please contact me for further details.


A commissioned watercolour or acrylic painting, or drawing, makes a wonderful personal gift for a special occasion...or for a special person.
Just contact me with your requirements and to discuss a time-frame. Then leave the rest to me. The work will be completed and delivered to yourself or to a delighted recipient.
