First Panel Install Complete 

The first one, of six panels, 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 .

I absolutely love using collage in some of my latest work.

Collage & ink on canvas.

Poetry in Bali

Occasionally I like to write, time constraints mean that Id far rather spend my time painting, or being artistic in a colourful messy way, but Ive just returned from an amazing art retreat in the stunningly beautiful Bali. Whilst there, Tracy Verdugo (who ran the retreat “Sacred Marks”) got us to sit for around 20 mins, and using inspiration bundles, we expressed a word, or a line of what ever the feeling we got was per piece. AS a result I found myself caught up in a wave of unstoppable expression (HA, I was worried I  wouldnt even be able to form more than 4-5 lines!), that went for almost 4 pages!
Here is an example of a couple of my poems….
