I’ve been working on some new paintings, they’re landscapes, and I’ve been working from video and photographs of places I’ve been. It’s so nice working in oil paint, deep rich colour :)

Setting up for the Arts Weekend

So I'm nearly all set up for the Arts Weekend - I've pulled work from my studio and made some new work - there seems to be a lot here!  So I thought i'd throw it all into a Catalogue - if you're interested message me and I can send you a copy, as a bit of a prelude to the weekend.

Hope you can make it

Enjoy!

Here are some of my favourites...

New studio space and gallery

New studio space and gallery

This is a photo of the gallery wall in my new studio in the Riverbank Lane (298 Victoria Street, Hamilton).  I'll hang new work every couple of weeks during the summer, and I'll be back working there full time from February.  Please contact me if you're interested in any of the works.

The gallery space is called Living Room Gallery & Art Space - check out the website here

Part of the community in the Riverbank Lane

So my new studio is two doors down from where I was, further into the Riverbank Lane.  Check out the website here   

I've moved in now, and the gallery will be up and running, but I'll be spending the summer in Raglan and be working back in the studio more from February 2018.  Call in if you're passing by.

An afternoon's painting at Manu Bay

 One sunny afternoon I stumbled down the hill at Manu Bay in Raglan, and did some painting down on the rocks.  It was so much fun, and I created this landscape in paint and canvas.  This is a photograph of the painting.

An upcoming show at RAMP Gallery
