I got nominated by Donna Steel for the "thinking blogger award" - Thanks!! Check out Donnas blog to see amazing works of art in progress with incredible texture!!

Now for the hard bit ... part of receiving this award means choosing 5 other bloggers to pass the award onto. These blogs are meant to make you think in some way or another ..... ARGGGGH its very hard to pick from so many awesome blogs .... well ... here goes.

These blogs are in no order... I realise they are all art related ... but thats just where my life is at the moment ... love checking them out ...

1) Erika Husselmann Erika is based in Auckland, New Zealand. She is an awesome artist and I especialy love her more whimsical pieces.

2) IKSRobertson Ian is based in Akaora, New Zealand . He is a very talented artist and one who inspires me greatly.

3) Sandra Toornstra Sandra is Coromandel based artist. Just love seeing where shes at with her art and reading all her musings.

4) Daily Painters Marketplace These artists are an inspiration in so many ways. Seeing what they can achieve every day by setting themselves goals ... a goal I hope to go back to at some stage.

Ocean Deep

Title: Ocean Deep
Media: Mixed Media, acrylic
Size: 38cm x 76cm
SOLD - Now hanging in parents home

This photo doesnt show the depth of colour - or even the colour variation! . The textured parts have more metallic gold in them. Looks stunning in the flesh and I dont even like these colours usually! lol

Ocean Swirl

Title: Ocean Swirl
Media: Mixed media, acrylic with gloss finish
Size: 46cm x 61cm
For sale: contact me
Heavily textured andpainted in blues, greens and aqua. This painting just evolved I had no direction with this one - not even my usual colour palette! But is one of my favourite pieces I've ever created!


Title: Sincerity
Media: Acrylic and resin
Size: 30cm x 30cm
For Sale: contact me

Round and Round

TITLE: Round and Round
MEDIA: Acrylic
SIZE 15cm x 15cm

Painted in blues. All dots are hand painted by brush. I've done a couple of these style - and for me they are about communication and relationships. When you feel like you're going round and round in circles ... some lasting longer than others ... but never quite resolving anything .. only to start again later ....

The Way the Cookie Crumbles

TITLE: The Way the Cookie Crumbles
MEDIA: Mixed media - acrylic, garnet gel and resin
SIZE: 30cm x 22cm

Painted in Earthy tones with a hint of metallic. We've all heard the phrase the way the cookie crumbles - usually it is connected with somehting that is out of our control and unfortunate which can bring us disappointment - the resin signifying the tears.


Title: Conception
Size: 30cm x 40cm
Media: Mixed Media
Earthy tones with metallic highlights - garnet gel and resined in places
Two people meeting, joining, becoming one in order to create a unique independant individual ...

Two Hearts that Beat as One

Title - "Two Hearts that Beat as One"
Size - 15 x 15
Media - mixed media with resin
SOLD Found a new home in Australia :)

Taken with flash (sorry) -red, black and gold which is metallic

This symbolises the mother and her unborn child - two seperate heart beats that are inextricably linked til birth - the joining of the two lives in utero. The gold around the central heart beat symbolising the love warmth and committment to the unborn life within ... Two hearts that beat as one


Title: Wish
Size: 15cm x 15cm
Mixed media: Acrylic, paua, and resin (photo taken before resin was applied)

This piece was inspired by the first star at night - where you always make a wish - a very minimalist piece.


Title: Hope
Size: 15cm x 15cm
Mixed media: Acrylic, paua, and resin (photo taken before resin ws applied)

The cross in the middle symbolises hope - a very minimalist piece.
