Painting and Drawing using the techniques of the old masters:

Artistic Member - Otago Art Society

Artists Statement:

I am a full time artist living and working in Palmerston, Otago.


The Pre-Raphaelites painters drew inspiration from Poetry, Literature, Roman and Greek mythology.

In a modern context I have updated and re-interpreted this by painting New Zealand heroes that are inspirational to both myself and many other fellow New Zealanders, starting with the Arts.
