SOLO EXHIBITION - LITTLE RIVER GALLERY September 22 2022, 0 Comments

I’m very happy to let you know that I will be opening my solo exhibition for 2022 at Little River Gallery in Christchurch on October 1st.

This exhibition is the culmination of months of work and I’m thrilled with how this collection of paintings has come together. There are large and small works on linen in a colour palette of muted turquoise skies, golden ochre fields and deep blue shadows. Pops of burnt orange and dirty pink add warmth. The show comprises a dozen original still life and landscape works and will also mark the release of a new limited edition print.

I will be at Little River for the opening on Saturday 1st October at 11am and hope to see some of you there! 
Please contact the gallery for enquiries regarding pre-sales and the online catalogue  

Big thanks. 

New and available work, 2022 April 24 2022, 0 Comments

Hi everyone,

Just letting you know that I will have new paintings available through Turua Gallery in Auckland over the coming months. I will also be showing paintings at my local Nelson gallery Red Gallery, and at Little River Gallery in Canterbury, leading up to a solo exhibition with Little River in October this year.

Additionally, original paintings are available via my website sporadically throughout the year.
I update availability via my Instagram feed and the occasional email.

New limited edition prints will be coming soon; a Central Otago landscape and some new blooms! These will be available through the aforementioned galleries as well as at Te Papa Stores in Wellington Central and Wellington Airport. 

I hope this finds you all well and enjoying the autumn season.
Take care and thanks for checking in,

NEW WORK - showing December November 14 2021, 0 Comments

A new selection of paintings appearing in December

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

Hi everyone,

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.

Warm wishes,


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

For the Nelson folk - I hope to see you there!

Best wishes,


LIMITED EDITION PRINTS - update March 22 2021, 0 Comments

Hello hello!

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...
