Inspired by the many personalities and colourful venues we have encountered on Waiheke Island as new residents; I have endeavoured to record these as ‘vignettes’ or snapshots of local life of which we play a small part.

I have tried to portray figure and settings as mini narratives; in bold colour and strong line in shallow space.

In terms of subject matter, I have always been attracted to genre subjects – figures caught up in everyday occupations… store holders at the local markets, buying a coffee at the café, an audience watching the hot rod Derby or  a neighbour taking her pet pig for a walk.
