Shaun paints beachscapes, seascapes, native plants and birds using acrylics on canvas. He likes to be involved in all parts of the painting process, collecting reference photos, assembling the supports, stretching canvases by hand, priming, and sanding to ensure the surface is perfect for painting. Shaun grew up in Tauranga, and has been painting as a career since 2007. Much of his inspiration comes from local scenery. His paintings can be found in collections around NZ and internationally.
