As a mathematically-minded fan of astronomy, sci-fi, and the ever- shifting shades of nature, I enjoy creating alternate views of our world for people to enjoy thinking about. The idea of parallel universes is very appealing, and I explore this by contrasting night and day, black and white versus colour, and mix up paints and photographs at random.
I am continuously experimenting with various media, and methods of display, and recently completed a 31 day project focusing on the Wairarapa in New Zealand. It was thoroughly enjoyable exploring the area and finding secret places, then posting a daily drawing.
“On the Rocks” is another delightful project which still sells 20 years on from the first image of Mt Maunganui.
I have exhibited in various places around the country and regularly create pieces for the seasonal exhibitions at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts in Wellington.
The galleries below showcase the various media styles I enjoy working with and I have attempted to categorise these variations. I attempt to keep a surreal thread running throughout my art whether the subject matter is landscapes, nature vs technology, political and social, or just plain silliness!
