PAINTINGS - NEW WORK - Continuing Series


I have recently returned to my homeland of beautiful New Zealand after living most of my life in Australia. My home overlooks the Bay of Islands. I now have a beautiful, albeit small, studio, in which to work with an amazing view of the Bay.  I am an incurable romantic and a hopeless collector, mainly vintage toys and object 'art. Not only have I had fun settling into life in New Zealand but recently I bought two adorbale kittens from the pound. My new home, my personal studio, my new environment and my new kittens have all played a part in my new paintings.
