I am absolutely thrilled that my painting 'Solstice Sunset' (pictured) has been selected to be on the cover of the Artists Impressions of New Zealand calendar for 2024. What an absolute honour. The calendar is produced by Elastic Design and published by Brown Trout Australia Publishers and will be available in New Zealand book shops and stationers around October/November of 2023.

Keep an eye out for it at Paper Plus, The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery, Take Note or your local independent book store! I'm going to be buzzing over this one for quite some time!

BOP Open Studios - 23rd - 25th February 2024


This is an idea whose time has come. I'm involved with a group of dedicated artists in the Western Bay of Plenty who are currently working to get this three day open studio art trail event off the ground next year.

Submissions are now open until 31st May 2023.

We are looking for local potters, painters, sculptors, carvers etc to apply to take part. Hop on over to our website where you can find out more information about the event and who is behind it. You can find the submission link on our 'INFO FOR ARTISTS' page. Please read through that page first. And spread the word to any artists you know in the Western Bay & Tauranga Council areas who may want to apply. Our selection panel will be making their decisions in June. In the meantime you are welcome to join the facebook group for interested artists  'BOP Open Studios' or subscribe to our mailing list from the website. If you have any issues or queries about the event please email us at
