I am a Contemporary New Zealand artist who is known for my use of vintage and retro influences and my deep love of animals.
My latest series of paintings and drawings are inspired by the beauty and fragility of deer. I have chosen to paint/draw them in their natural environment and depicted them in an ethereal/otherworldly manner, thus showing their fragility and how we need to look after the planet more.
My other new series is mainly Inspired by kawaii 1950’s Japanese figurines and ornaments and using the soft 1950’s inspired palette that I have always loved, I set to work to create a whimsical stress free world where animal ornaments from days gone by interact and fall in love just the way I imagined that my toys used to do in my childhood, incorporating humour into my work has always been very important to me.
My work has featured in many national and international exhibitions, Art shows and Charity events.
