  • The Simple Joys 651mmx247mm $2,200 SOLD
    With society’s ongoing struggle with mental health and the uncertainty of the world right now, I thought this was a timely opportunity to present these works; with this being the first painting in this series. I have had this concept floating around in my mind for the last 10 years, and I’ve finally figured out how to portray this theme in it’s purest form. The overarching idea is to bring a sense of calm to the chaos we live in, by enabling us to take the time to enjoy the simple joys in life. It presents us as we are in our truest form within the natural world, and strips away any attachments or preconceived notions we may have made about ourselves; to enjoy our world with a sense of peace and wellbeing.
  • Bathing Bliss 500mmx400mm $2,800 SOLD
    This is the second painting in my 'Joy' series, following on from 'The Simple Joys'. Bathing Bliss's inspiration is drawn from the simple need, and ability to find the joy in the little things in life. The magic is found in these moments.
  • A Box of Birds 950mmx750mm $9,500 SOLD
    This is a commissioned painting inspired by past pieces such as 'Down to the Wire' and 'No Junk Mail'. The couple that commissioned this were torn between a painting with letterboxes or native birds. It was a easy fix to combine both themes, and 'A Box of Birds' unfolded.
    I realized that others would also enjoy this fun loving painting. Therefore to share it, I decided to add the meaningful details important to them after it was scanned for prints, leaving them with their own special version.
  • Attitude in the Alps 500mmx397mm $2,800 SOLD
    This cheeky, charismatic native bird would have to be one of my favorites. They are another one of our national treasures, we are so lucky to have to privilege to protect these rare creatures. I painted this piece to celebrate this much loved bird, and bring awareness to the importance of their survival.
  • The Withers 745mmx300mm $3,600 SOLD
    This is a happy reminder of Marlborough's past. Even though the vines have been good to our region and it's economy, it's also lovely to reflect on what use to be, and how it shapes our future. It helps when we look to diversify, and all the great treasures we value from the past and how we can balance that with the future for our beautiful region.
