M Y B A C K G R O U N D:
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.
Hello and Welcome! I am a full time artist, and paint every day in my studio in the gorgeous San Francisco Bay, trying to harness some of the spectacular beauty to be found in California and let it loose it across my canvas! Here in my Vango shop you will find a wide variety of my palette knife paintings. My store includes my current portfolio; small paintings which are often studies for bigger pieces, as well as huge paintings. Something for every budget! I like selling on Vango, because I love art and people, and I hope that you will have a great experience here from start to finish, as well as liking your artwork investment! Thanks for stopping by!
