  • I was stunned at the excitement generated by the Baradene Art Show 20-22 May with huge crowds and queues of buying customers it is the 27th year and a highly organised and popular event. I had 4 of my Fashionista collection on display and they looked great in amongst the displays. Likewise, the Auckland Art Fair at the Cloud on the waterfront was an interesting event, the participating dealer galleries showing their artists' work.

  • Head Sculpture workshop at Otaki
    Two workshops, in February and March at the Otaki Potters introduced me to a fabulous club of clay enthusiasts. Each was fully booked with 10 people who came to learn how to form a realistic looking head, not an easy task! Using a sculptural clay we built up a column around a stand adding clay to create an anatomically and proportionally correct head. Day two we hollowed it out and finished with features and personal touches. Congratulations and thank you.

  • I have been working on this collection since May last year, taking a fresh approach to my figurative work. These pieces display the fashion and style of the 'between the wars' era and are especially relevant to the Art Deco Festival which takes place during February each year.

  • Figure in the Garden. Seven talented artists joined me for this project, work was very diverse because the participants were working freely using hand building techniques learned on this and other workshops.

  • For a month now I am working with a different style of figurative work, heading towards a major exhibition in Napier at the Arts + Enterprise gallery next year. I'll photograph and load pics of these pieces once I am happy with them. Clay is cream when fired and coloured with slips and acrylic to finish.

  • On their trip to Hawke's Bay visiting their artist suppliers, I was delighted to welcome Kaye and John to my home and studio. They saw me in my studio for the first time, gathered up boxes full of my sculptures, and then treated me to lunch at the Birdwood Gallery in Havelock North. I'm back to the studio now to make 15 little hanging/flying figures for their gallery.

  • My piece, 'Seated boy' sold on opening night of the exhibition at the Waiheke Community Art Gallery on 4 April. The exhibits were every kind of material and only a few were ceramic or glass. I hope to visit the exhibition before it closes on 5 May.

  • Ten days in a remote valley in the Wairarapa in January, 18 artists gather each year and has done for over 25 years to cast their wax forms into bronze, it isn't just the amazing cost savings of the collaboration, it is the meeting of minds and shared knowledge. There was a diverse range of art forms, many figurative but many quirky and individual forms from this group of mainly Wellington artists. A privilege to be involved.
