Motukahakaha (Paradise) Bay

A Northland location that has inspired me over the years, revisited early this year.  This corner of the Bay is suggestive of a time that has largely come and gone.  A family of baches arisen on the land in this stunning location, all with stories to tell I’m sure.

Sunstrike – Wainui

Living with the ocean as an extension of one’s front yard as a surfer is a constant and of course welcome distraction – the moods, the light, the atmosphere are constantly changing. “Sunstrike – Wainui” captures one of those fleeting moments when disparate elements come together to create an eye-catching spectacle.

Daybreak – Whangapoua

This coastal niche has inspired many of my artworks.  I captured this scene on one of my first visits to Whangapoua many years ago and it has always summed up in a simple way the experience of being there – stoked to have finally interpreted it into print!
