see me on the 2024 arts trail

Living in this particular slice of paradise, it is impossible not to have some creative stirrings, and I’ve tried with variable success to capture a sense of mood and movement in my painting.

I’m a local GP and have no history of art training.

I have an unhelpful combination of macular degeneration and impatience, which together result in a chaotic mix of brushes, fingertips, pencil/charcoal and varnishes.

The ocean and beach are my preferred victims although I’m also dabbling with portraits.

I suppose an impressionist style best describes my efforts I had several paintings sold in the McClelland Gallery in Whangarei, and have a connection with McAtamney Gallery in Geraldine.

I’m enjoying this new hobby and look forward to new inspiration and new challenges….one of which is the concept of selling art!!
