I have always had a great love of the natural world and a passion in particular for New Zealand flora and fauna. My artwork is one avenue I use to express this passion.
The medium I am using at present is scraperboard/scratchboard. A poster card is covered with a layer of white ceramic clay, which is then covered in a layer of Indian Ink. The ink layer is then removed using various tools to leave he desired patterns in white. A range of techniques develop with experience. Inspiration comes to me when taking part in some of my favorite activities which include plant revegetation projects, bush walking and beach combing. My aim is to express the great enjoyment I get from nature and share this with others in the form of my artwork.
