A million things going on (Whoa), in the art scene

Published by: | Category: Waiheke Wednesday | Leave a Comment

Did ya know?  Waiheke is a killer art destination.  Some of the biggest names in NZ art live here – Chris Bailey, Virginia King, Fiona Pardington, to name a few.   We have a Community Art Gallery good enough to be listed in The New York Times prestigious book, 36 hours in Asia and the Pacific.  We have private sculpture parks that rival the best in the world. We have arguably the best juried sculpture event in NZ. Good? AMAZING!!

About the author

I want to live in a world where Art is big, holidays are long, and forgiveness is taught in schools. I play every day with colour, my kids + my partner. I play to smile, to giggle, to take myself less seriously. I paint about commitment + the choices we make. Which really means I paint about making the world a better place. Which really means I paint about LOVE. The basic facts & figures: I’ve sold over 500 paintings, to people all around the world. I've been featured in magazines and newspapers in 4 different countries. I've been published in the infamous 'New Zealand's favourite Artists'. The NZ Embassy in Haymarket, London has my art on display.
