Hi, I’m Wendy,


Born in New Zealand to Dutch parents I was bought up on an isolated farm next to the most beautiful town of Kaikoura, where the grand mountains fall headlong into a rugged coastline.

I believe this outstanding landscape shaped my passion for life and photography.

I am married and have three children and seven grandchildren. Today half our life has been spent in New Zealand and the other half in Australia. I consider myself slightly Dutch, all New Zealand, with a touch of Aussie in the mix.


The spiritual aspect of the land and life is what posseses my thoughts and allows me to create. I am on a constant mission to seek out the wow factor in everyday normal living.


What I do:

*I blog weekly on self help for everyday life and spirituality.... and whatever else gets my attention.

*I sell my photographic prints which you can view on my NEWS page and also in my  GALLERY .

*Most, if not all my photographs in my gallery are for sale. Simply message me using my CONTACT PAGE

*I have written a number of adorable childrens books illustrated using my own photographic images, which you can buy through my gallery.

*I have one or two art exhibitions each year. More details to come....


My final persuasion:

As I have visited and photographed, hills and plains, mountains and trees, valleys and rivers, lakes, and fjords, oceans and cliffs, waves and sands...
I have absolutely no doubt that evolution is random, irrational and chaotic,  I find creation is infinitely careful, ordered and systematic, and that He makes everything beautiful in His time.
