I have tutored painting and drawing classes throughout the Auckland region since arriving here from Otago a decade ago. I have tutored at Mairangi Arts Centre for the last 5 years. I completed my early art training at the Ilam School of Fine Arts in Canterbury and have spent many years teaching art at secondary school level. Throughout my career I have worked in a variety of mediums. These include pen and ink illustrations for newspapers and books, painted indoor & outdoor murals, designed and painted many stage sets for theatrical productions and created many works in oils, watercolours and acrylics.
My paintings sell in leading galleries throughout NZ .
My art classes are held in a happy relaxed atmosphere where I strive to impart sound traditional rules and theories which will enable students to create their own artworks with flare and imagination.
