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. I love the exposure to the light and the ever changing landscape that will never be repeated. Mostly I get around by an adventure motorcycle so I can get to the out and beyond.
There are many paintings spanning 30 years and some are linked below on this page . Some are still for sale if you would like to own my work. I have had many stages and trends of my work over the years being influenced by many other artists.
Thanks again for your interest in my work.
Out and about on Kermit the Kawasaki
Painting Mt Titiraupenga from Ranginui Road.
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 other collections too that are for sale. Enjoy!
The 1990's was my first decade of painting. It was a style of large heavy oil (impasto) pantings often framed in large Rimu (native New Zealand Hardwood) frames which I personally made in my studio. See a collection of these 1990's paintings here. Enjoy.
The Millennium paintings are from the years 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 (native NZ Hardwood) box plate to the back of the canvas to create another dimension. See the Millennium paintings, some are available. Enjoy.
