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,
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.
What a fantastic evening for the launch of my pop-up show at Wilson & Dorset last week. Thank you to those who attended! The response to my work has been absolutely wonderful.
A huge thank you to Ju at Studio Home for whipping together this show with her amazing enthusiasm, style and talent. And to Amanda and the team at Wilson & Dorset in Wanaka for offering up their stunning space to showcase my paintings. It has been a fantastic show.
There are a few paintings still available via Studio Home Art House - www.studiohome.co.nz
Now it’s a short break from painting, a quick trip to Argentina and then back into the studio, full of inspiration and energy to restock the the website with new artworks! Phew.
best best wishes

Exhibition of original paintings opens at RED Art Gallery in Nelson on Friday 24 May, 5.30pm.
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.
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,
"A color stands abroad
On solitary hills
That science cannot overtake,
But human naturefeels.
It waits upon the lawn;
It shows the furthest tree
Upon the furthest slope we know;
It almost speaks to me."
'A Light Exists in Spring' - Emily Dickinson
Not sure if it's the mad spring weather or just my creative evolution but change is definitely in the air.
I am researching abstract expressionism at present and feeling totally inspired by the movement that happened predominately in the 1950's. Willem De Kooning, Clifford Still, Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline....
I have begun to cut loose in my painting and mark-making, exploring expressionism further in my work.
I'm loving it!
This new work is entitled 'Uplift' and is available in the webshop
or via RED Art Gallery in Nelson.
Hellooo from the studio!
I'm keeping busy painting and preparing new work this week; happy to be exhibiting at The Coolstore Gallery at Mapua Wharf for the month of September.
Lots of small painted colour studies, a selection of collages on paper and some large original landscape paintings on canvas.
Drop in to view these works, alongside those of the talented Dunedin artist, Emma Francesca.
