Artists Statement:   
My artwork is an expression of my love for my home and my life. Whether it is rugged, beautiful New Zealand landscapes or a portrait of someone I know. I am inspired by places I visit and compositions that excite me. All my artworks are in someway a reflection of my personality. Part of this is shown in my use of bold bright colours and partly in the themes of the things I choose to paint. When I am painting whether it is a landscape, portrait or something more abstract, the aim for me is to capture the essence of what it is im painting, It can be an emotion, a feeling or a mood. 
I feel that my artworks are my impression of what it is i am painting, almost as if the subject of the artwork has gone through a filter and is translated into the end result.
