Pat Henley is an artist living in Muriwai, on the West Coast of Auckland, New Zealand. Her captivating paintings are inspired by the dramatic west coast elemental energy found at Muriwai. She explores the relationship with this ever-changing environment in her expressive and vivid paintings.


She has also drawn inspiration from places as disparate as the Navajo Desert Canyons (Arizona, USA) and Antarctica. Yet these contrasting land form share a simplicity that reflect water and wind as the master carvers. Pat is also inspired by the connections between earth and us and between us and one another.


In her studio, on the cliff top above Muriwai, Pat creates paintings, born from her passion for colour and movement.  Pat's work Captures moods, movement, emotion, the seen and the unseen.
