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.

Exhibition of original paintings opens at RED Art Gallery in Nelson on Friday 24 May, 5.30pm.
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.
What an amazing response to my latest exhibition, 'Mezcla' at RED Gallery in Nelson. We had a fantastic opening night on Friday 18th May with most works sold.
I'm excited to be preparing for a new solo exhibition at RED Gallery + Design Store here in Nelson, NZ. It opens at 5.30pm on Friday 18th May and I would love to see you there.
Suzi and Ant at RED Gallery have been hugely supportive of my work since taking over the gallery a year ago. It's always thrilling for me to call in to their beautiful space and sup on a delicious coffee and see my paintings on their walls.
I've been working on this collection of new paintings for months. It is a culmination of thoughts, walks and studies of my local landscape and still life vignettes.
The studio is packed with colour studies, empty paint tubes; linens and canvases. It is a thrilling time for me - as the energy in the studio heightens leading up to the exhibition opening night.
Follow my BelleHawk Instagram feed to see all the sneak peeks of me at work and new paintings in progress. All exhibition works are available through the gallery, please call them on 035482170 for any enquiries. Or feel free to drop me a line anytime.
This year I am studying abstracted portraits and still-life works, monochromatic works and looking at how to incorporate printed textiles into my paintings. An age-old approach. I can't wait.
In the studio I'm stretching new swathes of linen over frames and dreaming up new colour palettes. Wonderful stuff.
Also a return to my textile design roots as I incorporate some of my original drawings and paintings into new pattern designs that will be printed on fabric and turned into who-knows-what. Something delicious. I'm thinking silk scarves and linen totes... Suggestions welcome!
I hope you enjoy browsing the website and viewing my paintings. Original artworks make original gifts! An artwork is a completely unique piece for your space and can be enjoyed for many years.
I'm happy to let all of you Canterbury folk know that I have a little exhibition lined-up for Christchurch at the end of this month. Opens October 26th 6pm.
I'm exhibiting alongside Christchurch artist, Harriet Millar at a private home on Papanui Road. The idea is that this is an informal setting to view the paintings, enjoy a glass wine and a catch up with friends. Please feel free to bring a friend and enjoy some art. All paintings for sale on the night and available to take home.
I will have some small paintings on ply, colour studies squares, as well as some larger landscapes on canvas. 10% of all proceeds go to the Uganda Orphanage Charity Fund.
Hope to see all of you locals there!
