The final video, from conception to install. A collation of some of the videos I took along the way, in the 4 and half months it took to complete this awesome project.
Last week we made the trip to Auckland with the final 3 paintings to install.
Here’s a short look at the final painting, on level 3 of the stairwell.
I’ll have a longer, beginning to end vid coming soon.
I video’s most of my days painting yesterday, edited it into a 10 minute ,easy to watch video, if you are interested in my process, then take a look 🙂

Feeling really attached to this lil guy, he carries the very special energy of the Bali Elephant Sanctuary I went to on my recent art retreat Bali trip. All the elephants were rescued from Sumatra where the jungles are being desecrated for palm oil. 😦 I used powers, inks predominantly, with some acrylic.
I have had a huge amount of butterflies fly into, around and over me lately. I always have at least 2 butterflies in progress. This mixed media piece is about 3/4 done. I love the pop of orange 🙂
This, just finished, is a commissioned peacock from a wonderful friend of mine
from my school days.
There is something really liberating about using these colours, something uplfiting
and joyous. Reminded me of a carnival.
hi all, Just a quick post, here is the link to a fab piece written about me & my arty endeavours. Also mentions a very large project coming up that I am in the middle of sorting…..
Finally was able to finish one of many mannequin torsos!
very happy with the outcome and sold to a regular buyer in Australia.
Much more difficult to paint fine smooth lines on this surface,
so this took alot longer than I normally would to paint something similar on canvas.
I have more to paint, and Im looking forward to experimenting with feathers and other things!
