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 🙂
Staedtler & NZ Artist Magazine approached me and asked if I could design an image & do a colouring demonstration to be published in an issue of New Zealand Artist Magazine, as a colouring competition for its readers.
At first it was a bit nerve racking, I mean colouring? is that my thing? Im a painter…aren’t I? lol… well it all turned out ok. (see pic).
I used my Karearea (NZ Falcon design) and took my time to color it, no plan, just went with what I felt would look good. I was actually thrilled with how it turned out considering my initial caution.
Along with the demo is an opportunity for NZ people to enter a competition to win Staedtler products and a copy of my new colouring book, which is 23 pages… a combo of both my books one and two with 3 new images.
This was all published in this months (MArch/April) issue of NZ Artist MAgazine.

hi everyone! 🙂
well, as the title says, Ive gone a bit crazy with the stencil thang. 🙂 Discovered scrap booking aisle (never scrapbooked in my life- well actually, I was doing all that with my photo albums WAYYYYY back, like in the 80’s & 90’s -you should see my Europe trip album its a masterpiece creatively!-before anyone ever marketed the idea with paraphenalia to sell with it!) at our local Warehouse store and flipped out! omg, sooooooooooooo good for art, the stencils are negatives but i dont care, in fact i like it….. bought one for a whole $1.99 *GASPS* and boy, hours & hours of creative pleasure!
Ready? (these are experiments, some unfinished, some maybe finished, not sure….)
and finally the piece de resistance!…………..
LOVE this! love, need, want more stencils! SO, going to make my own. *satisfied grin*.
Did a bit more on this one below, which im finding really cathartic… work on it bit by bit, its my ‘inbetween paintings’ painting.
And finally, I got 3rd place in an online art competition, called ‘For Children’- title speaks for itself really, with this:
really special for me, because this was one of the ones I did for my daughters, alot of love went into it.
