Hello friends and welcome
I've been involved with creativity, art and design all my life, through advertising campaigns, product labelling, marketing management, writing travel brochures, designing products, running my own award winning design business and for the last 20 years, art for sale.
NZ born, I'm based at Mt Maunganui, sell from my studio or various galleries I've been associated with over the years, they come and go. My main value has been to retain creative freedom and flexibility. Looking back, the work has been a kind of graphic diary of my life and times, and has sold far and wide, New York - Sydney - Denarau Fiji - and through NZ big city foyers and board rooms , wineries and gorgeous houses . During covid times when the world stopped, I escaped to a 2 room cottage in remote Coromandel , enjoyed communing with the birds and daily meditations, and I emerged with refreshed enthusiasm for expressing myself through the language of art. In 2024 in addition to the large corporate works, I am painting smaller and exhibiting at various community galleries in the Bay of Plenty.
