Latest Update - October 2015
* Guest Artist Exhibition - Air New Zealand, Wellington Koru Lounge.
I am very pleased to have been invited as Air New Zealand's guest artist. 20 of my paintings and light boxes are now gracing the walls of the Wellington Domestic Koru Lounge until March 2016 (so I kind of have my own gallery for a year).
The lounge will be regularly updated with new works over this time so watch that space.
All the art works are for sale.
My latest piece on display is titled 'Echium City'.
* 2016 Scots College Artist in Residence.
Following in the footsteps of Seraphine Pick and Matt Gaudie, I am looking forward to taking up Artist in Residence at Scots College March-April 2016.
Working with the Arts Department, I will be running art workshops with Year's 7-11 students.
As it is Scots centennial year celebrations, I have been commissioned to complete a painting of the school. This gives students a chance to see the design process from start to finish and use the image for fundraising.

It was great to reconnect with Auckland after a hiatus period of eleven years.
My theme was 'Home Addiction' and explored our nation's unique and idealistic desire to own our own block of land. The exhibition featured over 20 paintings on large rounds, canvases, light-boxes and installation pieces.
