After losing our house in the Christchurch Earthquakes, we moved north in early 2012. It was a big step and it has generated a new enthusiasm for me.
I am a self-taught mixed medium artist drawing my inspiration from the wonderful Northland landscapes and beaches, using recycled materials involving mostly landscape type scenes and botanical flowers but always expanding ideas.
By envisioning ways to enhance different types of mediums and using materials from recycled timber, plywood and canvas as a base for the art using watercolors, oils and even house paint I produce a wide range of pieces.
I also refurbish furniture, taking conventional pieces and turning them into something special.
