Pastels and oil painting
I have been a painter and portrait artist since 2001 and came to live in Whitianga in 2014. I am currently working on a series of large paintings in mixed media which are a venture into an exciting new direction and which will be available to see during the upcoming Art Escape. I also continue to use pastels for commission portraits and will be hosting a “Chasing Mercury” pastel workshop during Art Escape week. My new studio, Art Loft, is located centrally in town and easy for visitors to find.
I have exhibited in Auckland, Mercury Bay, the National Portrait Gallery in Wellington and have sold many paintings internationally. I have been a long-time member of the Mercury Bay Art Escape and am also a member of PANZ (Pastel Artists New Zealand).
