Exhibition - Coastal Journey

In 2009 my partner Tyrell and I decided to go on an adventure. We launched our sea kayaks from Hahei in the Coromandel and headed north…

Our five week adventure took us along the coast of the Coromandel, Great Barrier Island and Northland. We had no set destination and no time limit. The focus wasn’t so much on the physical challenge; it was more about enjoying and learning as much as possible about a region rich in history, our native flora and fauna and ourselves. For five weeks we lived a simplified style of life. Our days revolved around exploring and admiring all the caves, tunnels, rock gardens and wildlife that crossed our path.

Since the completion of our journey I have been working on this series of artwork. Each artwork was inspired by a place, an event, or wildlife that made a lasting impression on us. It has been both easy and an absolute pleasure reminiscing and painting from an experience.

About the artwork

Our tent was nestled in between these Nikau trees overlooking one of the most beautiful beaches we passed. Ours were the only footprints.
