Contemporary

My complex and intricately detailed drawings and paintings provoke the viewer to decipher their visual narrative. Inspired by the natural world around me I have developed a distinctive style influenced by Maori, Aboriginal and my own Celtic visual culture.

I often attempt to stimulate the viewer to ponder life beyond the natural to the transcendent, with birds, fish and whales serving as metaphors in a visual conversation.

After many years working as an illustrator I have realised a long held dream by opening my own art gallery. Here on the wild and beautiful coast of Wellington’s Makara Beach I exhibit my work to the public.

I am an Elected Artist with the Wellington Academy of Fine Arts having sold numerous works in exhibitions there. Many of these are held in private collections around the world.
