Neil J Bartlett


Neil Bartlett was born in Southland and has resided in Otago since 1971, when he   became a full time artist, and is still producing work full time to this day.


Neil loves the outdoors, and has an appreciation for nature that is obvious in his works. He has a style very similar to that of the great masters, and looks to them to build on his knowledge of art.  Neil does not use photography as his aid, but goes to the site and produces pencil sketches and takes lots of notes on site, then the painting is completed over time in his studio.


We have been selling Neil's work in our gallery for over 16 years, and have seen his style mature over that time into what it is today.


Although we are the main outlet for his work, Neil has had very successful exhibitions throughout New Zealand over the years.


Each painting is numbered on the reverse, and is a one-off original.  No two paintings are the same, a totally new sketch is created on site for a new painting.


Because Neil travels to the site, most subjects are within a few hours drive from his home.  Arrowtown, Queenstown, Glenorchy, Wanaka, Haast, and Eglinton Valley are among those favoured locations.


Neil’s work is adored by many, and they adorn homes throughout New Zealand and further afield in Australia, United Kingdom, America, and Canada.


His paintings range from $900 - $12000 depending on size.
