I’m based on the North Shore of Auckland where I live with my wife, and daughter. We are blessed with easy access to the east and west coast beaches, great regional parks and all of the advantages of city living.

My creative focus is on interpreting the unique wildlife and landscapes that surrounds the immediate wider Auckland region. I’m not after just a pretty picture of a place or animal, rather an artistic interpretation that can be represented through a beautifully crafted print that can be enjoyed within peoples homes or places of retreat. It is an ongoing challenge to capture the essence of place or the soul of our wildlife, but one that continually fascinates me and has provided me with a rewarding journey so far.

Thanks for stopping by.
