HOME WORK: Taranaki Art Now

My recent work 'The Butterfly Gate' has been chosen to be displayed as part of the exhibition 'HOME WORK: Taranaki Art Now' held at Puke Ariki from 7 June - 24 August 2014!


Peking Glass

My newest acquisition is this beautiful Peking Glass sautoir necklace from a seller on ebay called bluebird of happiness. I love the painting I made of the same name from my last exhibition 'Flights of Fancy' and it did make me happy that this stunning piece will forever be connected in my mind to that painting that gave me so much joy.

Book of Hours

I am painting the Lady of Shalott right now and while looking at medieval images I came across these from www.damienkempf.tumblr.com, three 14th century book of hours created in the shape of hearts. How stunning and spectacular are these little tributes to faith and love.
