The wild, west coast of the South Island is where Paul Foote hails from. Given he grew up amongst that spectacular coastline, pristine rivers, snow-clad mountains and lush native forests, it’s little wonder he paints nature. Paul was based in Christchurch for many years and lived and painted in Holland. He now lives in Tauranga. More out-of-the-way landscapes have been inspired by regular tramping expeditions into New Zealand’s backblocks. Paul’s recent focus has been lush bush scenes and a series of oceans waves.
