Hello lovely people!
An invitation to my next exhibition, ‘Queens Greens’; which opens 24 September in the McKee Gallery at the Suter Gallery, Nelson.
Please join me for a glass of wine on opening night!
Tuesday September 24th at 5.30pm
This exhibition is a collection of paintings, inspired by the lush local Queens Gardens. These heritage gardens are a wonderful array of deep greens, dripping foliage, water reflections and secret pathways.
Having grown up in Nelson, I have fantastic memories of visits to the Gardens as a child. Rambling around beneath the huge trees, along the pond edge and being mesmerized by the arcing droplets from the fountain and the slow, lurching turn of the water wheel.
This exhibition will display paintings based on the Gardens, as well as surrounding landscapes such as the Maitai River. The work is loosely figurative, lightly abstracted and inevitably veiled in emotion and memory.
The show runs until 6 October, so you have plenty of time to view the paintings. For non-locals, please keep an eye out on Instagram for updates and photos of the works, and feel free to contact me with any enquiries.
With best wishes,
What a fantastic evening for the launch of my pop-up show at Wilson & Dorset last week. Thank you to those who attended! The response to my work has been absolutely wonderful.
A huge thank you to Ju at Studio Home for whipping together this show with her amazing enthusiasm, style and talent. And to Amanda and the team at Wilson & Dorset in Wanaka for offering up their stunning space to showcase my paintings. It has been a fantastic show.
There are a few paintings still available via Studio Home Art House - www.studiohome.co.nz
Now it’s a short break from painting, a quick trip to Argentina and then back into the studio, full of inspiration and energy to restock the the website with new artworks! Phew.
best best wishes
L A T E S T N E W S : I’m excited to be launching a new collaboration with luxury brand Wilson & Dorset in Wanaka, opening 11 July.
Gold exhibition runs till 19 June in Nelson.
News and upcoming shows.
The countdown is over and opening night is upon us! I’m excited to show this new collection of paintings, ‘Gold’.
It is a good representation of where I am at currently in my art practice - painterly, old-school portraits and loosely rendered landscapes; still dancing in the space between figurative and abstraction. I love the challenge of it.
This exhibition shows at Red Gallery until June 19. If you’re not in Nelson, please feel free to contact the Gallery directly for any enquiries or to view the artworks online.
Thank you so much for checking in!
Best wishes for a golden Season wherever you are.

Exhibition of original paintings opens at RED Art Gallery in Nelson on Friday 24 May, 5.30pm.
Thanks to Homestyle magazine for the stunning feature on me and my art practice.
Thanks for stopping by.
Lots of new artworks coming out of the studio - I’ve finally hit some real momentum! Im loving this creative time and the season cooling into autumn; my favourite season. My natural colour palette. The soft light. The rich tones; the sweet fruits.
I’m focusing on producing lots of small works and colour studies alongside my larger landscapes. I want to have plenty of pieces available and as much affordable artwork as possible online.
I hope that even original paintings can be accessible to many and bring joy to lots of homes.
Have a fantastic month & thank you for visiting.
Hello! Summer school holidays have been in busy, noisy, happy full swing.
I've barely picked up a brush! I am now officially chomping at the bit to get into the studio and start some work on some exciting new projects and paintings.
These are all little (25 x 25cm) colour studies that serve me as a guide for colour and composition for my larger paintings. I currently have three big landscapes on the go that speak to this.
These paintings are great, affordable original artworks.
What a year it's been in the Belle Hawk studio. Phew! Amazing.
When I pause and look back on 2018, I am completely thrilled with the response to my paintings! And very grateful to all who have supported me in my art business.
I'm constantly learning. Pricing, promotion, technical skills, subject matter, gallery and exhibition decisions... it's all on the path of a lone artist and I'm cutting my track and hoping that I'm going in the right direction. It seems so far so good!
Currently, I have works on show at CharlieWho in Taupo. This has been a fun collaboration with Charlotte at her boutique, which is filled with wonderful fashion, art and homeware. I love the cross-over between art and fashion. I've shown portraits as well as landscapes there. Feel free to message me or contact Charlotte at Charlie Who (07 3783969), to know which paintings are still available.
Meantime, I'm working away to finish some smaller works to stock the website for summer. New paintings are being uploaded each week, so keep an eye on Instagram and Facebook for the latest additions. Art makes a great gift!
Thanks & best best loveliest wishes for the season of joy & giving.
