Its not all about brushstrokes

Winter is a great time for the housekeeping chores of art – cataloguing, re organising space, sketching and planning.That’s what May and June 2022 is about for me. When you purchase my art, you can either collect it in person or have it delivered direct to you by local art packing specialists. They send work world wide. Contact me on

What’s Up?

My Kiwitea Art Studio looks onto orchard blossom and outside seedlings are ready for transfer into the garden beds of our organically certified property.

Labour Weekend is a New Zealand holiday with paid workers gifted Monday off but here the days merge.

Two new wax works are complete. Oroua Valley Grid was barely cold before it found a new home! Northern Manawatu has a distinctive palette  – greens, brown, charcoal gold and beautiful blues.

Resting on the easel is a much brighter wax reminiscence of French market days – not a straight line in sight!  Meanwhile work on ‘Ngahere’ – a large installation piece – is continuing. This week that involved sourcing native flax and researching techniques for rope making.
