Bold, figurative paintings capturing the essence of everyday people.

"A modernist influence mixed with New Zealand culture is evident in my  paintings and gives them a truly unique flavour. Aesthetics is always high on the agenda, I paint to please the eye and draw the viewer in.

As well considering symbolism, meaning and making statements, I make art that is about beauty."​​

  1. Yes indeed we have received "Liberty", our last co-creation (of course you did the majority of the work). The colors are much brighter than I thought and it's still better. I'm very happy to have suggested you to explore a new palette of colors. A lot of new experiences are waiting for you in this new framework... The next time I will invite Willoos at home I will show him "Liberty" and ask for a his opinion. How does he feel that you were inspired by his style although keeping yours? Considering the events in Brussels this week, the symbol of Liberty and Freedom conveyed by the painting is still stronger. This piece will forever be linked to the conviction I have that the sun always comes back after the rain. We must always trust in the future. I have hung it beside your painting "Harvest Men". It shows the journey you've made in the last years in terms of style and composition. Thanks a lot... I also appreciated very much that you sent me a sketch of the painting. Best to you my friend....
