Artwork on Plexiglass
"I believe in the power of images to uplift: they enable us to remember the good within us and within our world despite how the world might sometimes appear. This is the aim of all the artwork I create - whether it evokes pleasant memories, brings a smile to your face or whispers a message to your soul. My artwork brings me joy, peace and inspiration. It is my sincere hope that it does this for you too."
Developed and perfected over the last few years, these contemporary pieces are created in layers over many days via various mixed media techniques including engraving, embossing, drawing and painting on plexiglass and board. This gives them a unique, almost 3D quality. There are currently three series: Bach, GeoGraphica and Creation (Plexi)...
Although the much of this artwork is available through my galleries, some are NOW available direct through this site and IN STUDIO, so please don't hesitate to click on 'enquire about a painting' or contact me directly and I'll point you in the right direction (and also let you know if they're still available)!
Want first dibs on an original?...
Sometimes original artworks sell before reaching my website, facebook page etc, so join the 'New Release Mailing List' if you'd like the opportunity for first right of purchase of a new release and you will receive a personalised email containing a pic of my latest original artwork fresh off my easel.
This series was inspired by my love of little old houses/baches/huts/cabins and sheds around New Zealand's small towns, and the memories they evoke such as holidays, family, friends and fun in the shared connection that makes us human. Currently there are only a few of these left in my studio gallery or at either the Eade or Majuba Gallery - so contact me soon if you'd like one.
Short for 'geometric graphic'. Conceived in the abstract, evolving to the non-abstract - Born from playing with randomized geometric shapes these works were intuitively developed AND ended up as recognizable forms. They include landscapes, cityscapes and various other shapes including yachts and wineglasses. The landscapes are inspired by (and a reflection of) my love of our land, our mountains, flora, fauna, rivers and wide open spaces. They are a response to the simple, raw beauty of nature that exists around our beautiful planet.
These are series within series (confused?!...sorry - I will attempt to explain)... these are recreations of designs I originally used on canvas using variations of mixed media techniques on plexiglass. I've done them in series repeating the same (or similar design) so I can fully experiment with technique/colour etc - so each is handmade and original in its own right.
