Latest Update - March 2013

I will also be working on a new collection for our October Wellington exhibition exploring the theme of 'time' and will update my website as I complete them.

Mirimar Peninsular Arts Trail and Artists In Action Weekend
I’m lucky enough to live and work in one of the most creative suburbs in Wellington. As there is literally an artist on nearly every corner around Seatoun and Shelley Bay we created an Arts Trail brochure that features over 20 studios. For one weekend the entire collection of studios and some guests artists opened their doors for the ‘Artists in Action’ Weekend on 9-10 March. Over 600 people attended this event and we are set to run this again next year.
20th March - Four@The Whitehouse
The same artists I exhibited with in Nov 2012 were asked to paint the view in situ on the veranda @ The Whitehouse Restaurant in Oriental Bay to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this legendary restaurant. It was a beautiful Wellington evening and the paintings were auctioned off to raise funds for NZ Heart Foundation. The entire event raised $18,000 achieving the goal set to buy a heart monitoring machine for Wellington Hospital.
