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,

Honoured to have my latest Tui painting

AND a 2 page feature on yours truly inside.
This mag is a widely distributed, visually stunning,
glossy mag filled with art & artists.
This is the second magazine my artworks have graced,
the former being New Zealand Artists magazine in 2015
with my flying owl, and a 4 page feature inside.
This mag, to this date, remains their biggest selling issue!

This 4 piece painting , 2m x 2m is off to the Bahamas once done.
Each panel is 1m square.
My buyers live on a canal , and wanted all the colours of the water and sky. Their inspiration was my ‘Legend’ series.
I’m using acrylics and inks, and am about 3/4 way through at this point.
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.
This is a commission for a friend. Ive painted loads of whales, but decided to change the angle of this, I wanted it to more dramatic. I akso, for the first tine am using acrlic markers for some of the detailing , certainly alot faster than brush & ink.
Really happy how it’s progressing so far 🙂
Acrylics, Inks, Acrylic markers.

Feature Article on Reina Cottier in ‘Coromandel Goodness”
I was honoured to be asked to be feature artist at the Whitianga Art Centre Annual Exhibtion for the month of January 2016.
Below are the paintings I have on display. I have sold four of them, so feeling very pleased with how it is going. For any New Zealanders reading this, the Srt Centre is on School Rd, at the end of the street. Exhibition runs for the month of January.
