Regal Sisters

Regal Sisters

“Regal Sisters” is a unique art deco painting with luxury, glamour, and a hint of Klimt. The bold geometry, texture and detail make this work distinctive. Embellished with glitter and rich colors, the overall effect gives the sense of royalty and confidence. In...
Distinguished Lady

Distinguished Lady

I’ve always loved painting folds. They fascinate me and I enjoy the three dimensional look. I love the art nouveau era and it will appear from time to time in my future works as it does in this one. Gold features over most of this work to represent the richness of who...
Empowered

Empowered

The message behind this painting is to remind women that they are empowered, and to rise up to who they are called to be without allowing their gender to hold them back.
Free to be me

Free to be me

This is the second in my series on self esteem. I see people as beautiful and unique and this painting is to remind people to be free to be themselves and not be influenced to strive to be like someone they aren’t.
Dreamer

Dreamer

This textured work has my favourite complementary colours which helps the painting come alive and the diagonal lines help express the movement of dance.
Wondering

Wondering

This young woman represents so many today who are wondering about their destiny and what her life holds for the future. Because each life is valuable and full of promise and potential I have added gold leaf to highlight the worth of an individual.
Hilltop Trees

Hilltop Trees

On a family outing to the top of Maungakawa Hill, Cambridge I spotted these four beautiful trees which I had to paint. This is a textured expressionist work.
Kaiate Stream

Kaiate Stream

Kaiate Stream, Welcome Bay, Tauranga. I came across this delightful scene while going on a bush walk with my husband and three sons. The New Zealand Pongas (a native silver tree fern) and toetoes (pronounced “toi tois”, a tall native grass) along with the orange...
Orange Irises

Orange Irises

I painted this live at a ladies’ meeting. I love the freedom of painting with pastels for a live event. The complementary colours of blue and orange give this work special vibrancy.
Floral Pathway to Glory

Floral Pathway to Glory

Our life’s pathway has many curves but God is faithful and is constantly with us as we stay on His path. The flowers represent the beauty and fragrance of the presence of God and His amazing promises which encourage us along the way to eternity.
Ti Point

Ti Point

I love painting expressionist works and my love of colour is obvious in this painting. This scene is north of Omaha Beach, New Zealand.
Joyful Poppies

Joyful Poppies

People just love poppies and they often are linked to happy memories from their past. I have painted many expressions of poppies over the years and they are fun to paint in their lovely warm colours.
Entering In

Entering In

This painting came about when I woke around 5.30am one morning with this image before my eyes, and knew I had to paint it. This work is totally different to anything I have painted before. I asked God what it meant and the revelation I had was that the circles...
Autumn Reflections

Autumn Reflections

Hamilton, New Zealand is beautiful in autumn – and much of its beauty is seen with the autumn colours reflected in the Waikato River, so this scene was a must for me to paint.
Universe – In His Hands

Universe – In His Hands

This is the first of a series. I personally marvel at the stars and the universe. It displays the awesome handiwork of our creator God. It has a cross in the work as a reminder that God has the universe and His whole creation in His hands.
Christchurch Cathedral – There is Hope

Christchurch Cathedral – There is Hope

Christchurch’s beautiful cathedral was badly damaged in an earthquake, including losing it’s steeple. It is hoped the cathedral will be rebuilt. I was inspired to portray the cathedral in an artwork showing the damaged cathedral and a rebuilt cathedral. I wanted to...
Ducks

Ducks

I have often taken my art students around the lakes at the Waikato University in Hamilton to capture a beautiful scene to paint. On this day my attention was drawn to the patterns and reflections on the water while the ducks were swimming. I love painting in the...
