Most of my art works are linocuts, which means that having carved the lino plate, I am then able to create several pieces from that plate – hand printing them by burnishing the paper over the inked plate with a glass baren (rubbing tool). So while significant thought, skill and time go into creating the linocut, the cost of each print is relatively affordable. A great way to be able to own or gift an original art work; only a limited edition is made from a plate, and each one is hand-printed on fine art paper and individually signed and numbered. All framed pieces have been professionally framed.

Editions of my work often sell out soon after they are completed, to people who have been following progress on Facebook or Instagram. If you’d like to be updated about new work you can message me with the subject line “Keep Me Updated” and I’ll let you know about new work (and also any upcoming workshops or exhibitions).

Hollow Tree

$150 unframed (six available). Approx A3 size

A seven layer reduction linocut, from a limited edition of 12. The hollowed trunk and precarious branch remind me of vulnerability, the old scars on this living tree remind me of endurance, and knowing this tree will leaf again in spring reminds me of hope.

Hollow Tree

$60 unframed (six available). Approx A3 size

A two layer reduction linocut, from a limited edition of 8. Printed from the same plate as the multi-coloured one above, but quite different in feel.

Solitary Tree

$90 unframed (several available). Approx A4 size

A four layer reduction linocut, from a limited edition of 17. This is a portrait of a solitary tree, under the Nor’West Arch – a cloud formation particular to the Canterbury plains. This tree reminds me of persistence and solitude.

Handprinted Natives

$18 each, mounted on mat-board, approx A5 sized

Handprinted linocuts of three New Zealand natives: our carnivorous snail, Powelliphanta, that slurps up earth worms like spaghetti; our Huhu Beetle who, after years in a log as a grub emerges for only a few fleeting weeks; and our Basket Fungus which has a rotten-meat smell, and is most often seen on mulch or amongst leaf litter.

The only thing on this web-page not printed by hand, these cards have been commercially produced on fine cardstock.
