One window into life that we call painting draws heavily on the subconscious, asking and answering questions for both the painter and the viewer.

I’ve lived most of my life around the sea – as a child on my grandfather’s boat around Raglan harbour – right up to my present life of summers cruising around the Hauraki Gulf, up to the Bay of Islands and around Great Barrier with my sisters, father and friends. Sailing, swimming, snorkelling and fishing … I’m definitely most at home at sea.

I’m now lucky to live in Raglan full-time, near my two daughters and their families, including five grandchildren.


I’ve been a lifelong student of many disciplines most recently a Cert Art and Creativity.

My infectious curiosity about all aspects of living and the relationships between them is the drive behind my creativity.
