I am very pleased to have been selected as a Working Artist member of the Nelson Suter Art Society. I am looking forward to the opportunity to exhibit my work in the beautiful setting of the Suter Gallery in Nelson.
Photographing boxes is so much easier than wall art! There are back-drops, lighting, attachments, shadows and reflections to consider. I've finally got the equipment I need to produce some decent images of my wall art. See my re-vamped Wall Art page for the results. It was pretty warm in there today as I was unable open the door as my work was suspended from it! All in a day's work!
A selection of my work can be seen at DETOUR ART GALLERY Blenheim Their summer exhibition has a diverse range of fabulous art from 20 Marlborough artists. Call in and say Hi to Peter and Charlene Scott in their beautiful art-space in the heart of Blenheim. The exhibition runs through until January.
I have recently been accepted as an 'Artist of Marlborough'. This is a group of painters, sculptors and ceramic, glass and wood artists who create a diverse range of artwork here in Marlborough. Look for the distinctive signs throughout the area directing you to their galleries and workshops. More information can be found on their website artistsmarlborough.co.nz
Two boxes I have recently finished, Eclipse and Helios, represent Night and Day, Darkness and Light. Made from Jarrah and New Zealand Lacebark, two beautifully coloured woods which contrast and complement each other.
An ideal present for storing your precious things - earrings, rings, cufflinks.
For all the chocolate lovers out there. Inspired by Thorntons Continental, a fine selection of milk, dark white and nutty chocolates - in fact I think I was slighty nuts for taking on this one! Which is your favourite? Encased in Red Beech and Jarrah, there are many beautiful woods on display here. To view more pictures visit my Other Boxes page.
A great gift for the sushi lover in your life. Serve your sushi on a board made from New Zealand-grown Oak with inlays of Jarrah and Lacebark; finely finished with food-safe oil. Complete with ceramic dipping bowl in either red or lime.
The board could equally be used for bread and dips or as a cheese board.
Size 30 cm x 18.5 cm x 3.5 cm
