 I have been painting New Zealand birds and flora since 1970, when I produced the paintings for three field guides on New Zealand Birds.  Mobil Field Guide to Common NZ Birds - Volumes 1 & 2. Mobil Field Guide to Rare and Extinct NZ Birds

These were followed by a series of Limited Edition Reproductions during the 1970's and 1980's and a series of 10 definitive postage stamps on NZ Endangered birds for New Zealand Post.

I have been a regular exhibitor with the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts since 1999 and in 2003 became a Signiture member of WNAG, the World Nature Artists Group.

 In 1993 my book, Images of a Garden, an illustrated garden diary of Te Popo Gardens, Taranaki, which was my home and inspiration for 17 years, was published by Reed publishers NZ.  

 In 2004 my first children's books were published and in 2005 a NZ Nature ABC called K is for KIWI.

2011 saw my first novel Taniwha by Liza Fox (author name) published as an eBook.

  During my career I have produced bird and flora paintings for clients such as:

New Zealand Treasury

New Zealand Post

NZ Fish and Game

New Zealand Ducks Unlimited

NZ Forest and Bird Soc.

New Zealand Ornithological Society ( a series of Christmas cards)

New Zealand Milk Board (America)

Nature in Art, England

I now live in the Nelson Bay area of New Zealand - Top of the South Island, and home to Kea (NZ Alpine Parrots), NZ Falcons, Marsh Harriers, Herons, Native Pigeons, Robins, Tomtits, Tui's and Bellbirds and many sea birds, giving me plenty of subjects for my work.

  I work in a variety of mediums including, gouache and watercolour, acrylic, ink and wash, pastel and pencil and metalpoint, all worked on either rag board or canvas.
