Tim Wilson – MH Ambassador

Tim is one of New Zealand’s leading landscape artists. His finely detailed work can be found in galleries and homes around the world.

Born in Palmerston North, his first trip to the South Island was with my 5th form class during the August school holidays in 1970. As a 16 year old Tim vividly remembers his awe when travelling down the West Coast and through Haast Pass to Queenstown, thrilling at the power of the Landscape on his emotions.

The Haast has such variety of mood and form. The play of light on mists and the seasonal change within inspire such a wide range of emotions. It’s these emotions I aim to portray. I am not simply painting the landscape but the emotional response engendered by it.

Painting the Matukituki, Wakatipu, Manapouri, Te Anau, Wanaka and much more of this remarkable country has taught me so much about myself. I feel such a strong spiritual sense of belonging in these areas and am constantly drawn back to the fold.
