For my about page





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. Both landscapes provide me with varied and amazing opportunities to photograph.

Unfortunately or fortunately, I wont be travelling to all those wonderful and exotic locations, Algieria, Morroco, the Sahara, Greenland, Africa, Peru, the Antarctic... to get that special shot. I must be content with my doorstep, which to date has kept me very occupied! When I am out capturing the ebb and flow of the earth close by, I find my limitless imagination takes me to those exotic places without the plane travels! 


The spiritual aspect of the land and life is what posseses my thoughts and allows me to create. 


What I do:

*I blog weekly on self help for everyday life and spirituality.... and I truly hope my images will inspire you to take hold of your dreams.

*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 children's 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 on my NEWS page.


My final persuasion and vision:

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 find creation is infinitely careful, ordered and systematic, and that God makes everything beautiful in His time.

I guess the main thing I would like you to take from my photography and blogs is encouragement, inspiration and a deep love and respect for what we have and what is ours; our minds, our bodies, our homes and earth.
