Winter is certainly here, we were lucky with the weekend for the Waiheke Winter Arts Festival, have a read from Chris Preston’s blog – thanks Chris! I get to see what some of the other studios are like via your pics! Jump over to the blog here: Chris’s Blog about the Festival
Now I’m busy getting underway with three new works, hard to stay inside when it’s so gorgeous out there like it was last Tuesday. These works are for The Gallery Staff and Volunteers exhibition coming up later in July – fun! Check out the latest at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery
Also, Winter sale! remaining prints and smaller works available, need to make room in the studio and they need homes! 🙂

Thanks so much to everyone who adventured up the hill to see us over the weekend. It was great to meet so many new people from the island and from far and wide. All up we had over 90 visitors during the weekend! Huge thanks to Roberto Sarlo who treated us to his beautiful music on Sunday morning, and then spontaneous jams with Raul Sarrot and those who couldn’t resist having a go on the drums ( I couldn’t find my proper jazz sticks so we just used paint brushes – they worked a treat! )
And what a magic way to finish the weekend with a visit from Jane and Kevin with their two curious daughters fascinated by the night sky, stars, the sun, astronauts and space in general. We’ll be working on getting some kid friendly ‘astronomy appreciation’ programmes established up there, the winter is such a special time to do some star gazing, so much to see. Thanks Jane and Kevin – a very special way to finish a fabulous weekend!
Brilliant to share the house again with Sarah Morrison, Paula Richa and this year, Lyndsay Meager joining us a wide variety of work for people to enjoy.
