NEW YEAR, NEW WORK & COLLABORATIONS January 31 2019, 0 Comments
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.
NEW STOCKIST, ENDEMIC WORLD. HELLOOO AUCKLAND! July 01 2018, 0 Comments
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,
UPCOMING EXHIBITION - OPENING 18 MAY, NELSON May 05 2018, 0 Comments
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.
WELCOME, 2018. January 24 2018, 0 Comments
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.
CHRISTCHURCH ART EVENT OCT 26th-27th October 12 2017, 0 Comments
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!

SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL! July 31 2017, 0 Comments
Four new small original paintings just released to the web shop.
Don't miss out on your chance to own a unique artwork, before they disappear to the galleries! These four paintings are available for a short time from the studio at the 'artist direct' price (ie. without gallery commission added).
Small artworks are perfect for brightening up mantlepieces and shelf displays, next to the bed, on bathroom walls or beside the kitchen window...
All works are in acrylic with oil and chalk pastel highlights.
PS. If you would like any of these pieces framed-up in the signature Belle Hawk style, (narrow pale timber surround), just email me and I'm happy to arrange this.
