Galleries

Welcome! I am a painter and a sculptor.

For me, art is about observing, this involves people-watching. I am often deeply influenced by things and events around me; and, as an artist, my endeavour is to interpret my reactions and thoughts, into paintings and into sculpture. My focus is always one of optimism, often showing challenges in life and also about things to aspire to............with an injection of humour and playfulness.

I am represented by major galleries in New Zealand and Australia. My work is held in corporate and private collections around the world, and I am very fortunate to have won many awards for my work.

Private Commissions  and  Payment Plans  available :-)
