Welcome to my Online Gallery
Displayed on these pages are examples of my recent artworks.
In a conventional gallery, once a work is sold, it generally is no longer available for public viewing. With this web-site I am pleased to be able to display paintings, which although sold, can still be viewed as a showcase for commissions.
I have drawn and painted since childhood, with horses always a favourite subject. Instruction at life drawing classes as an adult improved my observational skills, but I am mostly self taught and have learnt by my mistakes and seeing how other artists solved theirs.
I really enjoy making a picture from a blank surface - it’s a kind of magic. Watercolour has become the medium that for me, which does this the best. Chalk pastel , graphite and oils are other mediums I use, depending on style and subject.
I first started selling my paintings through the Otago Art Society, when I joined 20 years ago, and continue to exhibit and sell mainly through art society exhibitions around the South Island.
Throughout the years my art work has received awards, merit certificates and People’s Choice.
