I am an artist based in Central Otago, New Zealand - I use both traditional printmaking (linoprinting) and photography to portray the natural beauty that surrounds us. My 'happy place' is either behind my camera at dawn or dusk; chasing birds with a long lens; or in the studio drawing and carving.
By day I am an entrepreneur bringing order and safety to food systems. While this is quite different to my artist endeavours it does certainly require a lot of creativity (for problem solving) and observation and attention to detail.
I am constantly learning and evolving as an artist: my drawing and printmaking is always inspired by someone or somewhere I have been. Photography offers a number of creative freedoms - from longer exposure photography to capture light, through to portraiture, macro detail or rapidly moving targets (usually birds).
I rarely do commissions, when I do they become all consuming: after all, artwork has to come from the heart.
