I’m so excited to be one of three kiwi artists chosen as part of this wonderful ad campaign for Avis Australia and New Zealand called ‘The Art of Discovery’. I was sent to Banks Peninsula for a week to explore the area and then create three pieces for the Campaign. Akaroa Heritage Park, Okains Bay… Read more »

Had a great time at the PCANZ Summer School held at Ara Institute here in Christchurch. I really enjoyed learning a new skill with a bunch of awesome ladies. Here are a few images from the workshop.

Pieces ready for Christchurch Art Show. ‘Entanglement’ sold on opening night!
Monoprints based on the critically endangered Black Stilt.
This is the first large-scale piece that I’ve mounted onto canvas. It’s come up amazingly well and it really allows the bronze metallic to shine in a way that it wouldn’t behind glass. The wax varnish also finishes it beautifully. Big thanks to Gay who brought this piece and wanted it framed in a modern way…. Read more »
Some images from the opening of ‘Pulse of the Land’ and ‘Limbs’ at Arts in Oxford Gallery 17 November 2015. I’m excited to be sharing the gallery space with two great ceramicists who’s work really compliments the walls. This is four months of intense work for me, so a great feeling of achievement to see it hung… Read more »
I was very lucky to recently be asked to do a commission by Fiona and Peter Bersani of their much loved family batch at French Farm which was on the market at the time. So there was some responsibility to capture the elements that were important to them as a reminder of this special place…. Read more »

Hi all…thought I would update you on my latest piece which is currently out at Oxford for their December show leading up to Christmas. This one has a strong feeling of movement, particularly in the sky and plays on the tension between the mountain apex and the moon. It has a feeling of ascension with… Read more »
This is my latest piece of work commissioned by Sue O’Malley. She and her husband John brought one of my earlier works Indigo Skys. This latest one is of Lake Lyndon in winter with snow on the hills and a purple grey sky; quite moody. It follows on from Ice and Ridgeline which were taken… Read more »
The other piece I’ve just finished completes the series on Kaikoura and is called Resting Places. It’s a softer and more reflective piece than my other painting ‘pearls’ which is bursting with colour. Resting Places has a nice feeling of movement to it with the still pools of water the focal points. It is available… Read more »
I have a couple of new pieces at Arts on Oxford at the moment for their Te Wai Pounamu exhibition of South Island landscape artists. Both pieces are scenes from the Arthurs Pass region and I’ve gone for quite a monochrome palette focusing on the mood and textures of the area. The larger of the… Read more »
Hi all. Went out to Oxford today to have a look at the gallery and the exhibition looks great. I took some photos so you can see what the gallery space is like. It’s a surprisingly big, modern gallery and everything is spaced nicely so it looks really sharp. Very happy, so big thanks to… Read more »
What a great feeling! The final painting for the Oxford exhibition done and dusted, the sealant drying as I write this. Really happy with it. Quite a moody feel and the sharpness of the metallic train tracks really draws you into the painting. It’s called Finding Direction and there are a couple of images below…. Read more »
I use an interesting technique that enables me to paint in a watercolour style on canvas. This involves applying a molding paste base that creates an absorbent surface which the fluid acrylics can bleed and flow on. It also creates some interesting textures which show through in the finished works, giving them an ‘alive’ quality…. Read more »
