news & text

 

In mid 2016 I moved, with my husband, to my homeland of New Zealand, after living most of my life in South East Australia. I now live in the beautiful Bay of Islands in Northland and my home has a dedicated studio with stunning views of the water. My studio has two separate spaces in which to create work, ideal for painting and sculpting......I have christened the space Two Small Rooms!

2017 is starting off to be very exciting as I have been included in the stable of represented artists for the Parnell Gallery, Auckland, The Helium Gallery, Rotorua, Art Industry, Clevedon and Soul Gallery, Hamilton.

I am proud to say that my work is also represented by several galleries in Australia, namely Margaret River Gallery, W.A., and Anthea Polson Gallery, on the Gold Coast, Qld. amongst others.

I am currently working on a new series of small bronze sculptures and also oil paintings and am thrilled to have found a wonderful art foundry in Auckland.
