Latest Update - August 2016
* 2016 SCOTS COLLEGE COMMISSION AND ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
To celebrate their 100 year history, I was commissioned to complete a painting to tell the Scots College story.
To make something so complex into simplified images, I used the generationally familiar and timely Agee Jars. Each jar serves to hold a different moment in their history.
The painting titled 'Foundation for Life', will be launched in the August centennial celebrations and then hung outside the Headmaster's office.

* NEW LIMITED EDITION GICLEE PRINTS on handmade archival paper.
I have unveiled my six new oversized limited edition (only 15 of each design made) giclee print on archival paper (museum quality).
* GUEST ARTIST EXHIBITION - Air New Zealand, Wellington Koru Lounge
My exhibition moves from the domestic lounge to Air New Zealand's International Koru Lounge in Wellington from early June 2016 where I will continue to be their guest artist. My paintings will continue to be regularly updated once I have installed- so keep watching this space.
All the art works are for sale.
* TEXTILE DESIGN - FABRIC
After much experimentation, five new designs are now available on fabric.
Each design is $125 per metre plus GST (1500 x 1000mm). Email me for more details email@example.com
