Wilson & Dorset + Studio Home Collaboration July 16 2019, 0 Comments
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
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 STOCKIST, ENDEMIC WORLD. HELLOOO AUCKLAND! July 01 2018, 0 Comments
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.
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.
SEPTEMBER EXHIBITION: Coolstore Gallery, Mapua August 28 2017, 0 Comments
Hellooo from the studio!
I'm keeping busy painting and preparing new work this week; happy to be exhibiting at The Coolstore Gallery at Mapua Wharf for the month of September.
Lots of small painted colour studies, a selection of collages on paper and some large original landscape paintings on canvas.
Drop in to view these works, alongside those of the talented Dunedin artist, Emma Francesca.
SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL! July 31 2017, 0 Comments
Four new small original paintings just released to the web shop.
Don't miss out on your chance to own a unique artwork, before they disappear to the galleries! These four paintings are available for a short time from the studio at the 'artist direct' price (ie. without gallery commission added).
Small artworks are perfect for brightening up mantlepieces and shelf displays, next to the bed, on bathroom walls or beside the kitchen window...
All works are in acrylic with oil and chalk pastel highlights.
PS. If you would like any of these pieces framed-up in the signature Belle Hawk style, (narrow pale timber surround), just email me and I'm happy to arrange this.
