Artist, Painter, Crafter, Creator
Orepuki, Southland provides me with the constant inspiration that motivates me to make artworks on a fairly regular (obsessive) basis. I believe beauty lies in simplicity. Gemstone beach, with the ever view, wind slapped cliffs, expansive skies and incandescent light. A simple stone on the beach, the imprints of bird prints on sand or weathered twine that sits, curled and nestled beside a delicate slither of seaweed.
I guess I’m best described as a mixed media artist. I play with watercolours, acrylics, pastels, inks and graphite. I like to layer with resin and varnish. I love fabrics, particularly vintage ones with a story to tell.
I am very lucky to have several pieces of Andreas gorgeous art. A couple of them from recent works. They always get comments among our collection and I will be adding more in the future. Andrea is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful person and super to deal with.

Little Red Caboose
I own and operate a ‘pop up’ style art gallery, called the #littleredcabooseart gallery in Orepuki, Western Southland.
I have a repurposed shipping container that sits is a paddock, overlooking Taewaewae Bay. The vista is jaw dropping and often catches customers by surprise.
Beside it sits an authenic red train caboose. In here I make art and sip on coffee, generally on a Saturday, or by appointment.
