Douglas Reid - Artist Profile

My paintings are a combination of my enthusiasm for artistic endeavor and my passion for the great outdoors - particularly exploring our beautiful country and expressing what I see in paint. Regardless of whether it is a landscape or something else I am painting my aim is always to create paintings that are immersive, evocative, familiar and surreal all at the same time.

I work mainly in oils and am self taught.

After painting for my own enjoyment up until 2006 I started to sell enough that I took a leap and quit my job to became a fulltime artist. In 2012 I opened my own gallery in Downtown New Plymouth which is still open today.

I consider it an honor and a privilege that people choose to hang my paintings on their walls but would still be painting even if they didn't.

Thank you for viewing my work, all questions and commission enquiries welcome.
