Clutha River with Autumn Poplars


Our beautiful river. So big, so clear, so powerful, so energising! Inspiring in all seasons, but in autumn she gets framed by golden poplars and willows. One Sunday I biked our here to this spot with Zulu-dog and spent a blissful few hours in the sun, soaking up the beauty. Behind me is Lake Wanaka framed by the Southern Alps, in front, the sweep of the river and the banks of trees. At times like this I reaffirm that there isn't a more beautiful place in the world.

Mount Avalanche from Glacierburn


What a wonderful name for a peak! Mount Avalanche is often forgotten as she sits so near Mount Aspiring, but from the banks of the Glacierburn she dominates the skyline and claims her own space in your heart. And, yes, the forest bordering Glacierburn really is that dark and mysterious, and just here, at the edge of the bush, the river emerges from the most wonderful gorge.

On the banks of the Matukituki River


Sitting on the banks of the Matukituki River, looking up the east branch of the river. Hells Gate in the shadow on the left, Duncans Knob with fresh spring snow in the centre, Sisyphus Peak in the far distance. Our favourite picnic spot after a hike in Aspiring National Park, with our favourite swimming hole. And, yes, those are little sheep grazing in the foreground.

Mount Aspiring from Glendhu Bay


The view of Mount Aspiring I see most often. Just minutes from Wanaka, Glendhu Bay offers the first real glimpse of our this beautiful peak. This morning the lake was like glass, reflecting the white snow of the distant glaciers. Mount Aspiring is shown in the centre of the painting. Mount Avalanche to the left.

Mount Aspiring from Liverpool Ridge


Here is the icon of Wanaka's Southern Alps. Our very own Matterhorn. I was lucky enough to climb it in 2012, and I've painted it so many, many times. This painting is from high on Liverpool Ridge, a wonderful vantage point to view Aspiring and the Bonar Glacier. I made us walk 25km and up and down 800m to get to this sketching spot, but I've always wanted to capture Aspiring from this viewpoint and it was all worth it.

Tihaka Beach, Colac Bay, Southland


One of our favourite surf spots! Colac Bay has a beautiful beach, rocks for collecting mussels and a view of Stewart Island on a clear day. Often the weather is wild, and the waves too big for us beginner surfers, but this day, in fact, we had to wait for the waves to build up a bit so I spent the waiting time sketching.

Reflections, Dublin Bay, Lake Wanaka


An early summer Sunday morning on the beach, with lake like glass, and Roys Peak (left) and Treble Cone (centre) in the hazy distance. I let the others go water skiing and spent the time doing a quick sketch, capturing the mountains, dark pine forest and the reflections of the trees in the shallow water. Later I used the sketch I did on site to do this painting.

New Zealand Robin

This is an original painting done in ink, watercolour and collage.

The painting is of the New Zealand Robin. These friendly little birds are a hikers friend. We almost always see them in the forests near our home and they will hop quite close in the hope that you will disturb the leaf litter and release insects into the air. If you rest quietly for a while they will sometimes even sit on your shoe or bag, cocking their heads to one side (just like in this painting), staring intently at the ground.
