I paint acrylic on canvas and the themes of my paintings include rural landscapes, New Zealand bush and other Botanic Garden striking foliage. My paintings have been selected for numerous Art Award & Member group Exhibitions at the Pumphouse, Mairangi Bay Arts, Northart and the Flagstaff Gallery.
2012 was an exciting step up from doing singular works, to preparing a body work, for my first solo exhibition, at Northart. A Highlight since then was being selected as a finalist for the Molly Morpeth Canaday Art Award 2013. Originally I graduated as an Architect 1984 at Auckland University and previously have worked as an architect until 2002. I then became a business owner and have since enjoyed sharing my time between two passions , business and art.
