about me

I am a painter and freelance designer living in the country on the outskirts of Levin with my novelist/fabric artist partner, Carole. Our three children fled home long ago.

After graduating in graphic design/illustration with a BCGD (Hons) and qualifying as a teacher, I taught visual arts at both tertiary and secondary levels. I now paint full-time.

Drawing and painting, most often in watercolours, my main subjects are the features and the ‘moods’ of the environment. A passion for the outdoors results in my subject matter naturally inclining toward landscapes & seascapes.

My exhibitions are now popular events and my works proudly hang in international collections. I welcome inquiries or commissions...just get in touch using the contact details below.
