I'm a graphic designer and Makers is an outlet for my more personal artwork.
Over the last couple of years I have been painting landscapes in oils. My most recent work is based on the hills of the northern suburbs of Wellington around Mt Kaukau. I love painting studies outdoors (en plein air) and taking ideas further in the studio.
I have enjoyed exhibiting work in shows with the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts.
My art is available in the form of original paintings and limited edition, professionally printed fine art quality giclée prints - I want people to enjoy them for a long time. All work is designed and printed locally in Wellington.
