From the artist

Thank you for your interest. The works you see are generally amongst my latest. There are also some older works that I have a stronger connection to, that have either sold or for display only.

I have been married to Di for well over 40 years. She has always supported me in my quests and I her, I hope? We have five grown children and are grandparents. We live in a small community in the South Island of New Zealand, the Southern Alps village of Otira. A place of dynamic weather, high mountains, rivers and waterfalls, native birds and animals, all the simple things we love most.

I have been an artist for a very long time, sold works through galleries and our own gallery here in Otira. My art is in a state of constant evolution. Some have stories, some are crazy, gentle, mad, kind, thoughtful, different and thats a word I hear a lot about my art, and a word I like... to be different.
