NEW YEAR, NEW WORK & COLLABORATIONS January 31 2019, 0 Comments
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.
NEW EXHIBITION; Millennium Gallery Blenheim October 28 2018, 0 Comments
I’m supping a Sunday peppermint tea whilst typing a quick update for you.
October for me has been a month of commissions. I’ve been fortunate enough to paint some new landscapes for clients locally and overseas. It’s wonderful to know the people who will own and enjoy the works.
Up next is a group show in Blenheim, at Millennium Gallery.
'Afternoon On Wither Hills'
‘Inside/Outside’ is an exhibition showcasing still life and landscape artworks from six artists. Looks like a fascinating mix and I’m thrilled to finally be debuting in Marlborough! The show opens 6pm 7th November and runs until 9 December. I would love to see you on opening night from 6pm, or call in to Millennium anytime over the month-long exhibition. Alternatively you can call them on 03 579 2001 with any enquiries.
'Late In The Valley'
Thanks for checking in.
Have a wonderful week.

Hello lovely people!
I'm excited to let you know that the first of my original paintings are now available in Auckland. Endemic World on Ponsonby Road have four small works for sale and I will be sending more paintings North just as soon as I can finish them.
Endemic World has a fantastic selection of original art available, as well as beautiful affordable art prints and a great website for online shopping. I'm super pleased to be working with them.
Meanwhile, the studio is full of new works on the go, as I complete some commissions and explore some new ideas. Stay tuned!
Thanks & best wishes,
WELCOME, 2018. January 24 2018, 0 Comments
This year I am studying abstracted portraits and still-life works, monochromatic works and looking at how to incorporate printed textiles into my paintings. An age-old approach. I can't wait.
In the studio I'm stretching new swathes of linen over frames and dreaming up new colour palettes. Wonderful stuff.
Also a return to my textile design roots as I incorporate some of my original drawings and paintings into new pattern designs that will be printed on fabric and turned into who-knows-what. Something delicious. I'm thinking silk scarves and linen totes... Suggestions welcome!

I hope you enjoy browsing the website and viewing my paintings. Original artworks make original gifts! An artwork is a completely unique piece for your space and can be enjoyed for many years.
CHRISTCHURCH ART EVENT OCT 26th-27th October 12 2017, 0 Comments
I'm happy to let all of you Canterbury folk know that I have a little exhibition lined-up for Christchurch at the end of this month. Opens October 26th 6pm.
I'm exhibiting alongside Christchurch artist, Harriet Millar at a private home on Papanui Road. The idea is that this is an informal setting to view the paintings, enjoy a glass wine and a catch up with friends. Please feel free to bring a friend and enjoy some art. All paintings for sale on the night and available to take home.
I will have some small paintings on ply, colour studies squares, as well as some larger landscapes on canvas. 10% of all proceeds go to the Uganda Orphanage Charity Fund.
Hope to see all of you locals there!
MAD SPRING & ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM October 01 2017, 0 Comments
"A color stands abroad
On solitary hills
That science cannot overtake,
But human naturefeels.
It waits upon the lawn;
It shows the furthest tree
Upon the furthest slope we know;
It almost speaks to me."
'A Light Exists in Spring' - Emily Dickinson
Not sure if it's the mad spring weather or just my creative evolution but change is definitely in the air.
I am researching abstract expressionism at present and feeling totally inspired by the movement that happened predominately in the 1950's. Willem De Kooning, Clifford Still, Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline....
I have begun to cut loose in my painting and mark-making, exploring expressionism further in my work.
I'm loving it!
This new work is entitled 'Uplift' and is available in the webshop
or via RED Art Gallery in Nelson.
