back from holiday, went to Peru for a couple of weeks, including a few days in the Amazon/Jungle, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and La Paz, Bolivia. INCREDIBLE trip, epic adventure!
Here is a short vid of updates. Ive been painting for a few days, showing latest work, mediums used and mentioning the fabulous brushes I bought last year, and now on my second set.
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.
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 🙂
A short demo video of my on my mixed media butterfly, using acrylic makers and ink. 🙂
The first painting, of three, (2.4m x 1m) has now been installed on level one of the internal stairwell of the office block.
For those of you tha dont know, I got a contract to paint 6 panels, each 2.4m x 1m for the internal stairwell of a major city office block, the external wall being glass so will be able to be seen from the road. It is all based around native New Zealand (where I live) so the lower level is seabed, the middle is native forest/bush and the upper will be NZ skies. First panel now complete. The next one is a diptych. and the final is a triptych.
Couldn’t be happier .
‘My show, on Colour In Your Life, is now live on You Tube and on their website.
I absolutely love using collage in some of my latest work.
