CHARCOAL & PASTELS
I completed a BFA from Whitecliffe College of Art & Design, Auckland. I live on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand with my partner and two children. My inspiration comes from my surroundings, the bush, the birds and the nature of this wonderful place. It’s from this personal interaction with nature and its vibrant bird life that a lot of my subject matter stems. My illustrations are highly detailed and beautifully composed, capturing the alluring character of our native bird life. While my use of symmetry and mirrored imagery bring a refined design aesthetic to my art. I currently work in pencil, charcoal or pastel and enjoy the challenge of these mediums.
