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!

Turua Gallery, Auckland NZ. New gallery representation in Auckland.
Hello from Argentina,
The days are cold but bright; and the shadows are long.
The pandemic is gathering pace in South America and the local businesses are suffering. Movements are restricted, airports still closed, face masks still mandatory and the locals are staying in. The people here are used to crises and uncertainty and keep marching on. I admire them hugely.
As for us - we are enjoying our last weeks here in beautiful Mendoza before heading home to NZ. It’s been a difficult decision to leave here but with so many unknowns and restrictions, we feel it’s the right thing to do.
We are fortunate to have options and NZ is a great one right now.
A few images from the leafy autumn here...
Best wishes from me to you,
Hola! Welcome back
An update from me to let you know that we are still meandering in Mendoza, post-lockdown. We can now head out to shops, restaurants and parks - with restrictions and social distancing.
it has been fantastic to get out and about in our local neighborhood.
The autumn here is beautiful. Mendoza is a city of tree-lined streets and many plazas and parks that are crowned with richly-hued deciduous trees; laden with leaves. That, paired with the dry and dusty earth and the biscuit-coloured buildings, and I have a perfect palette from which to work
On the home front, we are still homeschooling our three children. It has its daily challenges! And impacts hugely on my ability to be creative and get into the studio to paint. That said, I’m inspired daily by my surroundings and am slowly getting together a new body of work.
Keep in touch via my Instagram account for all the images of daily life here in Mendoza and my latest paintings from the studio.
Best wishes. Saludos!
An invitation to my next exhibition, ‘Queens Greens’; which opens 24 September in the McKee Gallery at the Suter Gallery, Nelson.
The countdown is over and opening night is upon us! I’m excited to show this new collection of paintings, ‘Gold’.
It is a good representation of where I am at currently in my art practice - painterly, old-school portraits and loosely rendered landscapes; still dancing in the space between figurative and abstraction. I love the challenge of it.
This exhibition shows at Red Gallery until June 19. If you’re not in Nelson, please feel free to contact the Gallery directly for any enquiries or to view the artworks online.
Thank you so much for checking in!
Best wishes for a golden Season wherever you are.
Thanks to Homestyle magazine for the stunning feature on me and my art practice.
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.
I’m supping a Sunday peppermint tea whilst typing a quick update for you.
October for me has been a month of commissions. I’ve been fortunate enough to paint some new landscapes for clients locally and overseas. It’s wonderful to know the people who will own and enjoy the works.
Up next is a group show in Blenheim, at Millennium Gallery.
'Afternoon On Wither Hills'
‘Inside/Outside’ is an exhibition showcasing still life and landscape artworks from six artists. Looks like a fascinating mix and I’m thrilled to finally be debuting in Marlborough! The show opens 6pm 7th November and runs until 9 December. I would love to see you on opening night from 6pm, or call in to Millennium anytime over the month-long exhibition. Alternatively you can call them on 03 579 2001 with any enquiries.
'Late In The Valley'
Thanks for checking in.
Have a wonderful week.
