The Artist

In this world we walk on hell's roof and gaze at flowers. Issa.


Plants and flowers are my passion and pleasure.  I love to visit regional botanic gardens which are a great source of plant and insect life for my paintings.  My time is split between New Zealand and Australia so I have the colourful tropics for inspiration, and my own garden set in 60 acres on a temperate peninsula in northern New Zealand.



The garden is all about beauty, allure and trickery - and this is what flowers are for - to fool the insects!  

For this series of prints I have chosen iconic plants to illustrate the beauty and dynamic of gardens.
