NEXT UP - TURUA GALLERY, AUCKLAND! May 28 2024, 0 Comments

For my July exhibition at the fabulous Turua Gallery, I’ll be joining with the talented sculptor Jamie Adamson to present our joint show, ‘Duality’.


Opening 4 April!
I’m excited to share my latest body of work with you all. This will be my third show with Little River and I am thrilled to be working with this exceptional gallery. The contemporary space will be filled with landscapes large and small, along with a few floral paintings. 

I’ve been working hard to pull together a collection that speaks of New Zealand summer. Shady river scenes and illuminated hills, telling the stories of a hot, dry summer. 

Please join me in the gallery for the official opening on Saturday morning 10am, April 6th. 

Thanks for your support and best wishes for a wonderful Autumn. 

OPEN STUDIO NOVEMBER 9-17th ‘23 November 05 2023, 0 Comments

Hello lovely people!

I’m moving out of my beautiful studio gallery space at 27 Vanguard Street and so decided it was a good time to hang some paintings on the walls and open up the space for a week or two.

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work in this large and light-filled space. New tenants are taking over the entire building and so it is time for me to move my practice elsewhere. New studio location TBC…!

Meantime, I will be packing up my things and finishing off a number of paintings which will be available to view and purchase from the studio over the next couple of weeks. It would be wonderful to see you at the studio!
Please feel free to drop in anytime between 10am-3pm Monday to Friday or by appointment. 

Best wishes,

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. 
Thank you for your patience!

Enjoy your season,
