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.
