'change of heart', 76 x 76 cm acrylic on museum canvas, currently available at ART BOX Gallery, Christchurch. This painting is all about the power of letting go. Based on a fantastic write-up I came across on HeySigmund.com about the power of stopping to try and understand if difficult things happen and trusting life and myself to be able to just move on at times!
We went skiing that day...! Anything that involves the raw elements makes me feel so happy and alive!
WIP, aka not quite done yet! Keep your eyes out for this one, it will soon be done. Still at collaging stage...much fun though! 55 x 57 cm on card - in fact I painted over a photo canvas a friend had given me. Framed in a wooden, lovingly and expertly hand-painted white frame.
Every Yoga enthusiast knows what "downward dog" means, hence the title "upward dog" of this lovely sculpture to be! So exciting to work in the 3rd dimension from time to time, tiny wee reference dog model courtesy my son Keimpe who loves his 3D printer quite a bit, and so do I! Makes for really cool presents...

'Not for the faint-hearted' mixed media on 375 gr paper framed in light oak. SOLD
'flow, or so' mixed media on 375 gr paper (now beautifully framed by R. Mottram Framers), 84 x 75 cm, - currently available. Just ask! This work was the follow-on of 'not for the faint-hearted', a work that sold. This one is about how things became more normal again after Covid became a bit more manageable last year (2020). Hence the title! We all breathed a sigh of relief....
At the beautiful 'temporary' Christchurch Cardboard Cathedral, exhibiting with 6 other Canterbury artists. 'The Ninth Moon', commemorating the anniversary of our dreadful earthquakes and reminding us how we have become stronger through it. And we sure have!

Almost done folks! WIP and soon available! Its about 30 x 40 cm (A3) beautifully framed in a floating sort of situation. Framed work is 55 x 60 cm approximately. Very feminine and intentionally so. Title: 'Pink Princess (perhaps?)' There's some really exciting 'golden' paint on there too.
I am a real fan of overprinting, a printmaking technique that allows for quite some creativity and free-wheeling! 'nasturtiums', linocut print, A4 - quite some variations on paper available.
This is 'bol hoofd' (bulb-head), partner to 'tulip head' It's a m/m illustration/ collage work in A4, posted here purely in honour of Nono De Groot, such a dear friend, who had asked me to make a series about flowers, so that we could exhibit together. As I didn't have much trust in my own work anymore back then in 1997 , we unfortunately never did. Well, Nono, it is up here for you and I now!
'Orange Musings', work on paper - sold at the Christchurch Artshow
'tulip head' - my beloved avatar!
work on paper, 3 panels, Indian Ink, some awesome as wax crayons, acrylic - now available and made shortly after we received an S121 notice, calling for immediate evacuation of our property. I'd sneak past the red tape and work in my studio!!! The house was fine (save), it was the hill above that was deemed dangerous. Thank you thank thank you NZ, cause you decided to reinstate the hill so we were able to rebuild. Turbulent times for a single mum with two young boys who was just going through teacher training. Need I say more!
I love this wee illustration, NFS :)
an illustration assignment...A NO is a NO!
