‘Royals’ acrylic on canvas, 200 x 200 mm, 2021. Available.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes,
but in having new eyes.

Marcel Proust

My latest painting is a new, smaller version of a scene that I have painted once before. I find the image and the idea equally appealing ~ a monarch butterfly resting on Queen Anne’s Lace, as if by royal appointment.

The Monarch’s tale

Wrapping ‘Monarch’ to take to The White Room auction

I’ve just donated my ‘Monarch’ painting to an art auction! The auction is being held next month at Art Metro in Christchurch (NZ) to raise funds for The White Room, a very cool creative space that brings together disabled artists, non disabled artists and interested people to share ideas, learn, and interact through their common passions and interests in the visual arts. I’m so happy they asked me to be a part of this year’s auction.
