About Me

I was born on the island of Cyprus; then spent my early years in the Western Isles of Scotland so New Zealand is the largest island where I have made my home.

Eight years ago, having sold many paintings at a number of galleries (many of which are held in overseas collections) I finally realised a dream of opening my own art gallery at Makara Beach in Wellington.

Due to my illustration experience I can turn my hand to many different styles and media and can create art specific to your desire.

My illustration work has always been very diverse because I enjoy so many styles. Working in both digital and traditional media and with a diploma in Visual Communication Design and a Batchelor of Design, I have over 30 years experience in advertising, editorial, product and children’s illustration. 

While continuing my work as an illustrator and artist I began teaching both children and adults how to draw in 2007 (see Drawing Classes for more details).
