Neil J Bartlett - Artist in Oil


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 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 to produce pencil sketches and to takes lots of notes on site.  The painting is then completed over time in his studio.

We have been selling Neil's work in our gallery for over 25 years, and have seen his style mature over that time into what it is today.

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.

Neil's paintings range from $900 - $12000 depending on size.
