Your haunting call rings
out, a bell pealing across
the evergreen glade

“Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks" Plutarch

I am an acrylic and watercolour artist and printmaker.

An upbringing in the country and a life-long interest in drawing the world around me has led to a deep understanding of local birds and animals which comprise the majority of subjects in my work!

My wish is to create images that bring people joy. 

The Haiku poetry that accompanies my New Zealand bird paintings are more than poems; they represent a way of looking at the physical world and seeing something deeper, like the very nature of existence!
