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!

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…
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,
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!
Please contact the gallery for enquiries regarding pre-sales and the online catalogue
Just letting you know that I will have new paintings available through 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, leading up to a solo exhibition with Little River in October this year.
Additionally, original paintings are available via my website sporadically throughout the year.
I update availability via my Instagram feed and the occasional email.
New limited edition prints will be coming soon; a Central Otago landscape and some new blooms! These will be available through the aforementioned galleries as well as at Te Papa Stores in Wellington Central and Wellington Airport.
I hope this finds you all well and enjoying the autumn season.
Take care and thanks for checking in,
Turua Gallery, Auckland NZ. New gallery representation in Auckland.
A new selection of paintings appearing in December
Thank you for your patience while I am busy in the studio, painting
new works to make available for sale!
It is taking me some time to replenish the website with new original artworks.
Rest assured they are coming soon!
I have a group of paintings on linen that have been gradually evolving;
layers of oils built up to shape and reveal new forms and themes.
I’m enjoying working these through to completion, one brushstroke at a time.
Abstract landscapes that weave stories of primitive dwellings and old trees,
warm winter light and well-trodden pathways
Please let me know if you have any enquiries
or watch the website for the latest available paintings.
Thanks for checking in,
Just a quick note to let you know that I’ve just uploaded two new art prints to the website.
These two paintings featured in my recent exhibition, ‘Local Poetry’. A floral and an abstract and landscape - both with a warm, earthy colour palette and printed on beautiful cotton rag paper stock. Limited to an addition of 45 prints only.
You can purchase these online here or at Te Papa store in Wellington, Blackbird Goods in Napier and Hastings and at Red Gallery in Nelson.
In the meantime, I’m working away on some new original paintings in the studio and hope to complete a small collection of new works by the end of the month.
Best wishes and enjoy the week,
An amazing opening night!
Thank you for the fantastic response to my latest exhibition, ‘Local Poetry’. It was wonderful to see so many of you at Red Gallery on Friday evening. It was also exciting to have out-of-town folk buying paintings online at the same time! Thank you all for being there to support my art practice.
The exhibition sold out in 24 hours, which was thrilling! It will hang for two weeks in the gallery. There will be new limited edition prints made from some of the original paintings, so keep an eye out for these online soon.
I’m excited to be starting a new body of work and also taking on some commissions, after a pause for reflection and some research time.
