My paintings aim to take the viewer on a journey through a bizarre alternate reality. They are created in response to the ever-increasing environmental destruction of today’s modern world. Each piece gives a snapshot into an alternate ‘surreal’ reality where nature is allowed the freedom to regrow and flourish into something new. Grounded in the natural beauty of NZ landscape, I highlight local hidden spots and incorporate native flora and fauna into my scenes. I take all my own reference photography and put a lot of effort into capturing the perfect lighting often in the ‘golden hour’ that illuminates a scene in the best way possible.
