The NZ landscape artist web site is an online gallery of original oil paintings inspired by the beautiful and dramatic New Zealand landscape.

Canterbury, a province in the middle of the South Island, is known for its wide shingle plain, mountain ranges and soaring sky with impressively wind sculpted clouds. I have tried to capture the drama of these, the effect of sunlight as it is constrained by the dense cloud layer when the warm Nor-west wind blows or the racing storm driven weather from the south.

Sea-scapes are mainly inspired by the rugged Kaikoura Coast and relatively untouched Pelorus Sound.

The figurative works evolve from charcoal studies created when drawing with the Sumner Life Drawing Group. 

All works have been created by Kilmeny Keyse and are for purchase.  Please contact me for pricing information, thank you.
