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.
So happy to be telling you all that not only was I given a four page spread with 12 images and a fantastic write up….
…. but also, my owl painting, ‘Guardian’, was also featured on the COVER of The New Zealand Artist Magazine!
(EDIT: I have since been told that this issue was their biggest selling magazine to date!)
I created this wordart using my images/paintings, I used words that are in tune with the animal/creature I have paired them with, or the feel of the image/painting I have used. The result was better than I imagined, and the resulting sales of prints and cards means Ive done something pretty spot on I think 🙂
So, we have 3 butterflies, an elephant, an angel wing, an owl, a peacock, a dolphin & a whale.
I will most likely be adding more to the collection as time goes on.
ALL WORDART AVAILABLE IN PRINTS ON CANVAS, PHOTOCARD & GREETING CARDS.

ta dah!! 🙂
this sold within 3 minutes of me posting it online, and sold for the most I have ever charged for a painting of this size.
I put alot of time & energy into this creature, making sure he was exactly as I felt he should be.
