A LIFE OF PAINTING AND SCULPTURE
Hi, my name is Shaugn David Briggs. I have a real passion for painting and sculpture. This website focuses on my acrylic painting style that reflects New Zealand's culture and stunning landscapes and also showcase my sculptures. Aotearoa New Zealand is such a beautiful country and it is perfect for any artist to travel and create stunning landscape paintings. I will share my stories behind some of the paintings as well as some of the sculpture projects that I have worked on
When it comes to painting, I feel very privileged to be a New Zealander. I love to hit the road and find yet another great scene that this little country provides. Over the years I have sold many of my paintings through galleries and fundraising exhibitions plus private commissions. My paintings consist of landscapes and still lifes that have a real kiwi (New Zealand) connection. As well as my paintings I also have a keen interest in sculpture, which I feature below. To view some of my paintings and sculptures please click the gallery link below.
Along with my paintings, I also love the challenge that sculpture brings especially abstract. I enjoy working with the stone to achieve a piece that has contrast, flow and movement. Some days it is just great to be outside in the warmth, with some music playing getting into my creative zone. This side of my business has expanded in many directions, from selling my own original works, carving some amazing sculptures for my clients, and teaching stone sculpture through night classes and workshops. There are many options available if you are interested in commissioning a sculpture or you would like to learn how to carve stone. Please click on the link below for some more information.
