Here, finally, is my online shop, and Im thrilled.
Its been a long time coming, behind the scenes work on & off for what feels like for ever,
More products will be added over time, but this is a good start,
Yes, there very well may be teething issues, (so far so good tho?!),
but please, if there is something amiss, something not working,
a product, artwork you desperately want and cant see… PLEASE let me know.
There is a Contact tab at the top of the shop page.
“You are about to experience the energy of my art with guiding & inspirational words. This deck was created intuitively, both the art & the words came ‘in the moment’ with very little alteration or editing. Left ‘raw’ I felt they had a power that was more pure than if I reworked & thought about it too much. “
I think this has to be one of my favourite pieces I have ever created. It has a vibrancy, an energy about it,.. its so alive and raw. I have reluctantly let it go to a gallery , but I wont be disappointed it it doesn’t sell (lol!) Id love to keep it 🙂
Its a mixed media piece: collage, ink, acrylic.
ALways wanted to paint faces… so, I decided, since it was a bit frightening,
to just go for it and painted one a day for 5 days. I went at it in a hurry,
because I didn’t want to think about it too much, didn’t want to
ponder each move, each brushstroke, I just wanted it to be a really free process.
I used inks, acrylics, and other mixed media. Loving the texture with tissue paper too.
Sometimes I blurred my eyes, or used my left hand, it was really good to ‘let go’ and
not be preoccupied with what I think a face should look like, this is what was
holding me back before. These 3 are still in process, but will be available once finished.
I have just returned from 2 weeks in Peru, and 2 days in Bolivia. An epic adventure, non stop experiences, a visual feast, awesome people, not really adequate words available to describe the experience, or feeling one has whilst there. Vibrancy, depth, history, passion, sacred, ancient, connected, energy… it was a once in a lifetime journey, I will never forget. Cant wait to start painting, and see what evolves.

here are 3 paintings in ink I am currently working on, they are Peru inspired with mountains, flowers, jungle, moon, winged Goddess….. love the mysteriousness of the dark against the bright colours, obsessed with inks at the moment. 🙂

Large custom wood panel for corporate environment, featuring New Zealand native seabed- by Reina Cottier
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.
The second very large painting, (of three) has now been installed. A diptych (2 panels, each panel is 2.4m x 1m, so entire painting is 2.4m x 2m)) of New Zealand native plants and our native bird the Tui. This is on the second level of a 3 storey office block, in the internal stairwell.
