New paintings coming soon! July 27 2021, 0 Comments
Thank you for your patience while I am busy in the studio, painting
new works to make available for sale!
It is taking me some time to replenish the website with new original artworks.
Rest assured they are coming soon!
I have a group of paintings on linen that have been gradually evolving;
layers of oils built up to shape and reveal new forms and themes.
I’m enjoying working these through to completion, one brushstroke at a time.
Abstract landscapes that weave stories of primitive dwellings and old trees,
warm winter light and well-trodden pathways
Please let me know if you have any enquiries
or watch the website for the latest available paintings.
Thanks for checking in,
TWO NEW ART PRINTS RELEASED June 15 2021, 0 Comments
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,
Thank You - ‘Local Poetry’ exhibition May 16 2021, 0 Comments
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 OPENS 5.30pm 14 MAY May 06 2021, 0 Comments
‘Local Poetry’ Opens at Red Gallery in Nelson next Friday. Just one week to go!
Paintings are at the framers and the final edit is done. It’s a mixture of cool riverbank scenes in blues and greens with a hint of violet; and a bunch of warm abstracted florals and autumnal landscapes.
Please contact Red Gallery directly to view the full catalogue of works or visit their website www.redartgallery.com
For the Nelson folk - I hope to see you there!
LIMITED EDITION PRINTS - update March 22 2021, 0 Comments
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...

AVAILABLE ARTWORKS January 31 2021, 0 Comments
Hello Hello & thank you for visiting!
Apologies that there isn’t much artwork available right now!
Due to the juggle of school holidays with three little people, I haven’t been able to quite keep up with the current demand for my paintings.
I have lots of messages from lovely people saying that they have missed out on paintings and that pieces are selling out before they have a chance to purchase. I understand how frustrating that must be - my apologies!
Each original is created with time, care and attention and is not a process that can be rushed. Please be patient as I build up a new body of work and make new paintings available over the next month or two.
I will post updates on Instagram and Facebook and here on the website as new paintings become available.
I’m also adding two new pieces to my limited edition giclee print series; these will be available from February 3.
Thanks so much and enjoy the sunshine

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!
DECEMBER ALREADY! December 15 2020, 0 Comments
THANKS TO YOU
For a following along with me on this wild and crazy ride that has been 2020!
The first half of this year was spent in Argentina. An adventure cut short by the pandemic, but nonetheless an adventure, even if only to taste and experience some South American atmosphere, climate, language and meet some truly wonderful people.
Back home to NZ to re-set and back into my little studio space for some painting time.
sales have been swift and I’m happily painting up new original pieces all the time to satisfy demand. What a fortunate position to be in. I know. And I take nothing for granted. I’m rolling with it and am so grateful that my art practice is flourishing.
Beat wishes for the Christmas season and New Year celebrations!
Be safe and enjoy every day.
