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,
The art prints have been a great addition to my art business. It’s such a fantastic way for people to have a little piece of artwork for themselves or to gift, without breaking the bank.
I’ve kept each edition to just 45 prints, so as to keep them a little rarefied, a little more special.
‘Mendoza Roses’ has been a popular one from the start and has now sold out.
I’m adding a new floral to the mix to replace this; ‘Soft Roses’ coming soon...
They’ve been a long time coming... but I’m thrilled to have launched these new art prints.
Each work is limited to an edition of 45 prints. Each print is signed and numbered individually by the artist.
Printed on beautiful textured heavy cotton rag paper, these prints have a wonderful quality to them - vivid, highly pigmented colors and beautiful details. These make excellent gifts and frame up beautifully for anywhere in the home or office. View full details on the website.
Have a wonderful festive season!
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,
An invitation to my next exhibition, ‘Queens Greens’; which opens 24 September in the McKee Gallery at the Suter Gallery, Nelson.
L A T E S T N E W S : I’m excited to be launching a new collaboration with luxury brand Wilson & Dorset in Wanaka, opening 11 July.
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.
Hello lovely people!
I'm excited to let you know that the first of my original paintings are now available in Auckland. Endemic World on Ponsonby Road have four small works for sale and I will be sending more paintings North just as soon as I can finish them.
Endemic World has a fantastic selection of original art available, as well as beautiful affordable art prints and a great website for online shopping. I'm super pleased to be working with them.
Meanwhile, the studio is full of new works on the go, as I complete some commissions and explore some new ideas. Stay tuned!
Thanks & best wishes,
