 I hope that you have all enjoyed a vey Happy New Year!  Now with the festive season almost to its end thoughts of starting work is on my mind.  I have been doing a study at Taylor's Mistake since the end of December and over  the past several days.  With this hazy sun and cloud or smoke interference, the colours have been very moody and quite dramatic.  At times when the sun has filtered through, it has looked like little diamonds on the water....I have been inspired to say the least!  

 UPDATE     The Summer Show at the Little River Gallery that was to open on Dec 19th has not opened.  Apologies to anyone that has made a specific trip out to the show.  I only found out yesterday january 2nd on my visit to see the show with friends and was shocked to see that it has not opened.  The work that I had thought was to be part of the annual Show is still in the Gallery shop area but you really need to look around as they are scattered throughout and some are in positions that one would not necessarily look, nooks and corners.  I am sorry that I cannot advise anyone on how long the paintings will be on display but i will do my best to update once I am told.  You can always email me with any questions and if you would like to see any images i am more than happy to forward them to you with sizes and prices.  Once again,  Little River's website of my work is not a true reflection of what is on display, as most of the images on the website have been sold and none of the new works have been added.  Again APOLOGIES




The next exhibition that I am working towards is a group exhibition in Napier,  the first time i am participating and very happy to have been asked.  Tremains Affordable Art Exhibition is being held at Napier Girls High as their annual fundraiser.  This exhibtion is very much affordable and has been very popular over the years.   The weekend of 27th -29th March   In 2019 they had raised over 30,000.00 for the school and have high hopes for 2020 and i am thrilled to be able to give something to this  cause.  The funds raised will be used to foster student wellbeing for all ages.   

 Closer to the time i will update with their social media page and more details.  

Hopefully the warmer days will burst through in January, February and March! 

Stay safe
