I love the shapes and textures of the Northland moving landscape and am particularly drawn to the shapes of the clouds, the nature of the surf and the many ancient volcanic remnants that proliferate throughout Northland. Starting with the Whangarei Heads and then onto Northlands underappreciated coastline, islands and volcanic remnants, these have become my focus for the past 15 years and I don’t think I have scratched the surface of the images I wish to cover. I’ve published calendars and a landscape photography book alongside framed fine art work, and I’m now starting to explore other mediums in which to exhibit on a larger scale, for example kitchen splashbacks and very large scale vinyl wall paper images to a very high standard have become possible with evolving technology. My imagery seeks to celebrate and reflect back to Northlanders the power and beauty of their natural landscape and cultural histories.
I look forward to seeing you at the Arts Trail, I’m always happy to have a chat regarding commercial and commission work.
