Silke's Paintings

I’m in love with the stunningness of New Zealand scenery. I especially love the colours and shapes created by light and shadow on the landscape. I'm super inspired by Kandinsky and Hundertwasser so I love to use bright colours to reflect the vibrance and diversity of Aotearoa. 

I prefer to paint landscapes, mainly 'cos I can't do faces and hands very well, and I'm no expert at creating photo realistic paintings, so abstract is my go to style. Abstract also leaves me free to interpret things any way I please. 

This country is positively oozing natural beauty through its colourful people and landscapes – and it’s this beauty I try to capture in my paintings. I hope I do it justice. 

DANCING DOLPHINS

Dolphins are regular visitors to Wellington these days. Such happy creatures that make everyone smile. This painting was inspired by the dolphins dancing in the bow waves of my Dad's boat.

 
ORIENTAL BAY, WELLINGTON

Gotta love a city that has a beach in it's CBD. When I was working in town, my colleagues and I would often nip down to the beach for a swim in our lunch break. Love our city.


LIMESTONE ISLAND, WHANGAREI

I painted this one for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. It's the view from their place in Whangarei, with a Kandinsky flavour.


ISLAND BAY, WELLINGTON

Have enjoyed many summer days on the beach here. A favourite Wellington spot.
