Isaac Petersen was born in New Zealand.
His memories of the ocean and rugged landscape of New Zealand has inspired him to paint predominantly landscapes and ocean scenes.
Travel being a big part of his adult life, his paintings expanded to capture the essence and feeling of his journeys overseas.
The recent addition of his wife Erika to his paintings adds a figurative dimension to his beautifully painted environments.
"I hope to leave the viewer with a good feeling. Whether they can relate to my painting with a past experience or a fantasy of a place they would like to be, I hope my painting can take them there."
