My new large Hydrangea and Cowslip print is in the window at Black Asterisk Gallery in Auckland now ….

The last 2 large editions of hydrangeas have completely sold out, so here’s a new interpretation combined with delicate cowslip, straight from the roadside.

We spent two days recording her creations which are most inspirational.  Her work really does come straight from the heart!

Here are some images from New Lynn Public Artwork – ‘Fabrics of Our Culture’
…. creating icons reflecting the diverse cultures to New Lynn: Asian, European, Maori, Pacific.

And below that her latest installation of artwork within the fantastic space at Jasmax architectural offices … featuring home wares such as wallpaper, light fittings, cushions, wall art etc.
