I am a New Zealand born artist living and working in Melbourne.
I draw inspiration from my surroundings and aim to capture my chosen subject with sensitivity and feeling. Painting predominantly en plein air grants a refreshing immediacy to my paintings.
In my botanical and still life works, I convey a feeling of vibrant life by highlighting colour and movement. This is particularly through engaging with changing light and its effects on the natural hues of my subject matter.
I enjoy working with oil paint - playing with thickness and fluidity.
