NEW PAINTINGS & AN UPCOMING SHOW August 24 2023, 0 Comments

Hello everyone,

just to let you know that I’ve updated my website with two new original paintings. They are landscape studies with a European flavour; showing soft-edged dwellings in a shadowy landscape setting. I’ve named them ‘Stone’ and Terracotta’ in reference to the surfaces of the buildings that throw a soft play of light. I spent years living in Spain and these colours and tones come back to me time and time again. 

In other news, I have a group show coming up next month at Little River Gallery. This a floral exhibition opening 23 September.  It’s sure to be a visual treat!
Thanks & best wishes,

TURUA GALLERY, AUCKLAND - opening 16 June.

Hi everyone,

I’m excited to be presenting a solo show at Turua Gallery this coming June. Opening Friday 16th June, this exhibition will be a culmination of months of investigation and painting. Works on linen, canvas and board will explore ideas of home and familiarity, simplified form and colour harmony  

Turua have represented me for several years now and this is my first solo show with them. I’m thrilled to be unveiling this collection of paintings at Turua with Liss and the team.


I hope to meet you there!


BRUSH CLAY WEAVE February 03 2023, 0 Comments

A new artistic collaboration with ceramicist, Hayley Thomas and weaver, Suse Talley. I’m excited to present this curated exhibition of work in my studio space, Salt Gallery in Nelson. There’s a magic that happens when handcrafted objects are placed side by-side and given context. We are aiming to create that alchemy by designing a conceptual domestic space that combines my paintings with Hayley’s sculptural forms and Suse’s intricate and highly textural woven vessels.



So please join us for our opening evening at Salt Gallery, 27 Vanguard Street in Nelson on Friday 24th of February from 5pm. We would love to see you there! 

SUMMER 2022 November 27 2022, 0 Comments

Hello! Welcome.

There is much underway at the studio. New paintings, large and small, landscapes in a semi-abstracted style on linen. 

I’m enjoying the fresh, clean and contemporary feel to these new works  

I will be curating a special new space in my workspace, Salt Gallery which will be a collaboration with two other artists. It will be a coming together of ceramics, basket weaving and paintings. I’m looking forward to bringing together some new synergy with this combination of art, craft and handmade beauty. 

Watch this space for more details very soon…

Hello hello!.

At the Spring Exhibition; Red Gallery, Nelson

Thanks so much for all of your enquiries regarding new and available artwork

I will have new paintings at Turua Gallery in Auckland over the coming months. I will also be showing paintings at my local Nelson gallery Red Gallery, and at Little River Gallery in Canterbury; as well as uploading a few originals online here on my website. 

My new limited edition print, ‘Lamplight’:

I’m working on a series of small landscapes on linen and canvas as well as some large new works - abstracted landscapes in cooler colours. I’m loving this productive time of year and some longer, lighter days.

SOLO EXHIBITION - LITTLE RIVER GALLERY September 22 2022, 0 Comments

I’m very happy to let you know that I will be opening my solo exhibition for 2022 at Little River Gallery in Christchurch on October 1st.

This exhibition is the culmination of months of work and I’m thrilled with how this collection of paintings has come together. There are large and small works on linen in a colour palette of muted turquoise skies, golden ochre fields and deep blue shadows. Pops of burnt orange and dirty pink add warmth. The show comprises a dozen original still life and landscape works and will also mark the release of a new limited edition print.

I will be at Little River for the opening on Saturday 1st October at 11am and hope to see some of you there!

Big thanks.
