Winding up through impossibly steep mountain passes, my eye catches glimpses of bright turquoise rivers. These waters are fed by ancient glaciers carving steep valleys on either side.
A few minutes later I’m immersed in lush, green, moss covered forests - then a lake so calm and pristine it silently mirrors the colossal mountains behind it.
Here, it’s impossible not to be constantly overcome with awe.
This series captures my trip around the South Island of New Zealand. A place with
a plethora of diverse landscapes - a breathtaking new vista around every corner.
It’s a jewel in the crown of this incredible planet, in a country I call home.
A Life So Bright - Lake Pukaki and Aoraki/Mt Cook
Where the Light Touches
Back in my studio, I found that I was leaning into a more natural style, one that pays respect to the wild energy of the landscapes and the soft beauty of its natural curves. Sheer white layers - like light, textural washes and strong lines catching the movement of the native vegetation, a palette grounded in the earth with splashes of my signature playfulness.
