Born and raised in West Auckland, Matthew, 26, delivers realism to the canvas through the eye of a self-taught perfectionist who strives to innovate and develop his skills in his craft.

Matthew began his career as a realism charcoal artist where he learnt the importance of light, blending and tones that create foundations for realism art. After recently inviting oil paints into his inventory of mediums, he now focuses on gathering a body of works than can display a pure progression of learning the art, and science, behind oils.

Matthew started his full-time art career upon completing his Engineering degree in 2017. After winning the Cliftons Art Award in 2017, also receiving a Merit award and the Peoples Choice Award in the Parkin Drawing Prize in 2018, Matthew strives to use his new abilities and produce works for art competitions in NZ and around the world in the future.
