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.

Exhibition of original paintings opens at RED Art Gallery in Nelson on Friday 24 May, 5.30pm.
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.

Hello from a busy studio,
(I can hardly move in here right now!)
Just one week until my exhibition of new artworks opens at RED Art Gallery here in Nelson, NZ. So I am putting the finishing touches on paintings, darting in and out of the framers and pulling it altogether into a coherent collection!
It's been months in the making and I am excited to present this new body of work, in such a wonderful space. This collection is dominated by painterly landscapes in a rich, warm colour palette. Large works on linen and canvas and smaller colour studies on ply.
If you are in Nelson, please join us for a glass of wine at the opening on Wednesday 17 May at 5.30pm! Or pass by RED Gallery to see the exhibition which will show until 2 June. Any enquiries, just drop me a line.
Thanks & best wishes,
A sneak preview of some of the work I've been producing for my upcoming art exhibition at Red Gallery and Design Store in Nelson in May. I'm having a wonderful time with this rich, warm new colour palette which is full of purples, pinks, terracotta and cooled with some clean greens. I've been to Morocco, Mexico and the Australian Outback and trekked the local hills to find the evening light - all without leaving the studio....
It's all coming together and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you - watch this space for details and exhibition date!
