When people look at my work and feel a connection with the subject, that is the result I am working towards. My artworks bring memories back to life and connect not only us with
each-other but also people with nature.
“The noblest art is that of making others happy” - Quote by P.T. Barnum
Inspired by the natural landscape and elements found in New Zealand, I have created an eccentric style and presentation of art.
With the colour variations of over 40 different shades of natural New Zealand sand, I have the ability to capture the distinctive attributes of that special person, place, beloved pet or landscape, in a highly detailed and personalized sand portrait or sand painting.
In my sand paintings and portraits, I have pursued the simple and effective results that can be attained through contrasting the natural colours and textures of the sand.
