Carl has had a life long yearning and passion for art… in particular, painting.
Introduced to painting by his grandmother over 25 years ago continuing to develop mostly self taught. Accepted into Elam at Auckland University in 1994 Carl had to discontinue early on for personal reasons. Carl is influenced by, but not limited to, the New Zealand landscape and animals (birds in particular) with the wealth of diversity they display in form and colour. These are brought to the viewer in a unique style.
Carl has had his art on display, and selling, over the last ten years and has recently increased efforts to make art a higher priority.
