I am based in Ashburton, and have lived in Mid Canterbury most of my life. My favourite subjects are mountains, rivers and lakes, old buildings, flowers, and still life. My style is usually traditional, but I do sometimes venture into abstraction and have a sound knowlege and enthusiasm for all aspects of sketching and painting.
Accurate drawing, good composition, colour harmony and tonal contrast, and the direction of light are important considerations in all my work.
