Art has always been my passion, along with wildlife, nature and travel. For as long as I can remember I have sketched and drawn animals. I started working as a professional artist in 2009 and mainly work with two very different mediums; Pastel & Scratchboard. I love the drama aspect of working in monochrome with Scratchboard, and the degree of detail I can achieve to depict birds and wildlife in representational artworks. I also very much enjoy Pastel as a medium, because of its softness & blendability, quite the opposite to wielding a scalpel blade!
Rarely without my camera, I use photography (and photoshop) as an integral first ‘drawing’ stage for my art. I enjoy visiting predator-free islands and bird sanctuaries, and often spend many hours capturing our wonderful native birds for reference material. Residing at Rarangi Beach, Marlborough, the seabirds, kotare and karearea are frequent visitors.
I enjoy being able to support wildlife causes through my artwork, and commissioned wildlife paintings have a percentage donated to a wildlife or conservation cause (of choice).
