What a fantastic experience it has been with the Nelson Arts Festival this October. Thank you so much for flying me down to Nelson for two weeks to paint my heart out, situated on the banks of the beautiful Maitai River, with a group of talented, fun artists – Geoff Noble, Miriam Hansen, Smeagol, Richard Adams and the Kawai Raupapa Rauangi (Maori visual arts) students from Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology.

We were ‘The Billboard Project’ and by the end of it, all of us had created these large-scale 1.2 metre x 2.4 metre paintings that are now being auctioned on TradeMe - you can bid here for our works. Auctions close Saturday 7th November 2015 and if you’d like to own my work entitled “Grey Ghost“ you can bid here for my painting.
