New sized Guidance Cards!
My Guidance Cards are now 13x9cm . (and 400gsm card stock with a silk finish).
My original vision for these cards was this larger size, but at the time , 3 years ago, I couldn’t find anywhere to print this size , near here, that was cost effective. Finally , I’ve found somewhere and I’m thrilled with the results, they look amazing!
They are exactly the same as before, just bigger, and I think, better 🙂

Meditation Series 2020
I started meditating in March 2020. Not long after I started, (literally days,)
I started painting this series,
and seems as though I cant paint anything else
until this is out of my system.
At this stage of my art journey, I am very happy to go with the flow and allow what wants to be without trying to over commit to creating anything, or any subject, or go with something that is not flowing happily.
In other words, Im in a space of total allowance these days… only that which brings me joy or not at all. 🙂
Most of these have sold, but there are a couple available,

Native & Real, Bright & Energising
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.
Time Lapse Demo of Detailing the Bird
Video Demo- A day in my studio
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 🙂
Recently Completed Works
After a somewhat prolific painting period in Feb/MArch, I was so pleased to be able to have some of these on display for the Mercury Bay Art Escape (Studio tour) recently. Also happy that some sold, and some are going to 2 separate galleries in our region.
I am totally loving my new abstract pieces, harking back to my first days of painting, and combining with some techniques both learned/inspired from others, and also self discovery as I go.
and last but not least , a commission I completed for a man who owns a Bed & Breakfast on the shores of our beautiful Lake Taupo, named after our native owl, ‘Ruru’, with views of the lake, and Mt’s Tongariro, Ngarahoe & Ruapehu. He asked for the owl to be the feature and for it to be set at night….I was really pleased with how it turned out.
