Thanks for visiting :-) I live in the beautiful lakeside town of Taupo in the central North Island of New Zealand and I am a New Zealand en Plein Air painting artist meaning I now paint mostly in the outdoors with a portable easel. Mostly I get around by an adventure motorcycle so I can get to the out and beyond. I love the exposure to the light and the ever changing landscape that will never be repeated.

Most of the paintings from my previous eras have sold. The available paintings are mostly newer open air (en Plein Air) paintings from recent years and done in Acrylic but there are still some large oil paintings in my available collections too. Enjoy.
The 1990's were my first decade of painting. It was a style of large heavy oil (impasto) pantings often framed in large Rimu frames which I made in my studio. See a collection of these 1990's paintings here. Enjoy.
The Millennium paintings are from the year 2000 till 2013 and feature mostly large Oil Paintings done in the studio. I was fond of using box canvases in these paintings and adding a Rimu box plate to the back of the canvas to create another dimension. See the Millennium paintings. Enjoy.
