Latest Update - February 2015
What's Coming Up
* Open Studio - Miramar Peninsular Arts Trail Weekend 28th Feb and 1st Mar 2015.
My studio (as well as 20 other Artists) will be open all weekend from 10am to 4pm over these dates. I will have a new collection of paintings and lightboxes to show.
Tickets $10 and available from www.mpat.co.nz
Visit at least 10 studios and be in to win one of 25 original paintings. This is one of my latest you could win:
* Guest Artist - Air New Zealand, Wellington Koru Lounge.
I am very pleased to confirm that 20-30 of my paintings and light boxes will be exhibited and filling the Wellington Domestic Koru Lounge from April 2015 to 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.
* New Light boxes and Neon - check it out on my Paintings for Sale page.
With these new pieces I'm moving away from only using conventional 'artists' materials of simply oil paint on canvas or wood. Playing with light is proving to be very fulfilling.
