“To the most remote darkened heart we’ll carry light.”
-Pablo Neruda

Texturally rich evocative abstract inspired by nature.

Acrylic on Canvas

Part of my 2021 Exciting Series-following on from a year like no other where challenges abounded. But most importantly, the wellspring of opportunity tough times bring feels like a prevailing positive wind. The mood comes to life in a surge of raw energy. Billowing shapes and dynamic planes break free of the mold and let loose in energetic bursts of vibrant, vivid, victorious blue colour.

Speaking to the magic of those groundbreakers and game changes who rode the wave of disruption to step up and speak out for change. Really Cool celebrates a seachange and gives permission for our hopes, dreams and aspirations to soar unbounded by fear into the stratosphere. Redefined by hardship, the world is emerging better. On the crest of a new beginning, the possibilities are infinite.


Named and eventually purchased by a lady in Texas who saw my painting, created here in New Zealand, on Facebook and commented, “Wow. Really cool.”
