Sean Fietje started painting with acrylics in 2004 while living in Hanmer Springs in his early twenties.
"I was given a painting set for my birthday and it clicked with me immediately. I began painting places from around Canterbury and the South Island that I was enjoyed exploring and found beautiful."
In 2012 Sean applied for the prestigious New Zealand Art Show and was accepted for a Solo exhibition. He has a passion for painting beautiful scenes that evoke an emotional response in the viewer.
