I find junk, see treasure.
I keep things for years until they find their place.

Life, The Universe, and All That

I've been an artist, and exhibited widely, for 50 years.
Mid-life career change? I used to be a mathematician, teacher, physicist, computer programmer
. . . it feels like another life, another person. I am very fortunate, having so many choices.

I live at Puniho in rural New Zealand with my partner, the painter Paul Hutchinson. It's a good life.

My works are in the collections of Puke Ariki, The Dowse Art Museum, the Govett Brewster Art Gallery, the Gisborne Museum and Arts Centre, Massey University, the James Wallace Art Trust and the Lessedra International Art Collection. And in private collections. I miss them, these lost treasures.
