Small Marks in a Huge Time April 27 2020, 0 Comments

Small things, small thoughts in a huge time. Moments of contemplation. Feelings of hope. Frustration. Marking down gratitude. Sketching out calm. Outlining bewilderment. Fear. Recognizing tragedy. Depicting joy. Eternal optimism.

A NEW YEAR, NEW ADVENTURES... January 29 2020, 1 Comment

Happy 2020!

It’s fascinating to be entering a whole new decade. For our family, this means grabbing a life opportunity to jump into the unknown and venture overseas. We are spending this year in Mendoza, Argentina. 

My husband works in wine and does business there, so we will take the opportunity to immerse ourselves in their culture and learn their language. A new experience and an education with our three children. 

It will mean some time out of my painting practice while we pack up and then settle the family into a new life.
Then I hope to absorb a whole new landscape, palette of colours and energy and pour it into a new body of work. 

Sometimes, I wonder if I have already started...


Thank you for being part of the journey with me. Wishing you all the best with yours, wherever 2020 may take you. 
Best wishes,


NOVEMBER NEWS November 07 2019, 0 Comments

Hello lovely people,

Thank You for checking in!

It’s been a wonderful month of art for me.

Here are a few snapshots, to let you know what’s been happening in my studio over the last couple of weeks. I’ve shipped a couple of paintings north for the King’s College Art Show (above); finished up some smaller paintings for private clients, sent five new pieces to Endemic World in Auckland (below) and am now setting to work on a few long-standing commissions. 

New paintings this month:

‘Wandering Light’ (sold);

‘Foliage Study I’ (sold);

‘Still Life With Blues & Oranges’ (sold);

‘Light On Old Roses’ (available).

I’m full-up with orders and gratitude for 2019!

There are new paintings in progress, large and small that I’m hoping to complete and make available online and with other galleries over the next month, so do check in again. 

Thanks & happy travels,

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 -

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.
