A beautiful New Zealand scene captured by my palette knife with a lot of texture, movement and reflective light. This original painting works well in a bedroom, living room, kitchen, hallway or office. The color palette and textured style fits in well with many decorating styles. Whangamata Beach is in the North Island, a few hours from Auckland, and is popular with locals and tourists. It truly is the most beautiful beach you have ever seen!

All my paintings are oil on canvas, using mainly palette & painting knives, with thick application, bold strokes, painterly detail and rich colors.
The palette knife gives my art a unique combination of contrast, fluidity, depth, texture and impact. I do not typically use a brush, as I prefer the way I can mix buttery paints and smear them on my canvas with a flexible metal blade. The amazing thick texture achieved with the knife reflects the light more than a regular brush painting and gives a beautiful sense of movement, with subtle highlights.
I am originally from New Zealand, where the beauty of nature is unsurpassed. The luminescent beauty of my homeland inspires me and I feel it in every stroke. I try to reflect this in my work and invite you to enjoy it as I do.
