Kura Gallery, Wellington SEPT 2019
My latest work, Wellington Pou, will feature in a Showcase Exhibition at Wellington's Kura Gallery in September 2019.
Conservation of the natural world is important to me. I represent plants and birds and animals in my paintings. Through my artistic collaborations I support local conservation groups to protect and restore native habitats.
I created Wellington Pou (see right) to commemorate the 50th anniversary of conservation work by the New Zealand Department of Conservation.
On a painted background, featuring Wellington landscapes, I have overlaid drawings of species like the bittern bird, snail, brown skink, sponoid marine worm and speargrass beetle all of which are on the Wellington endangered list.
