Is it time for more colour in your life?

Apple Tree Bay
Apple Tree Bay
1800 x  1200 mm
New Zealand beeswax and pure pigment on board

This bespoke piece was commissioned by the couple as a ‘statement piece’ to adorn the large white walls of their newly refurbished Bay of Islands home. They named it Apple Tree Bay because it abstractly reminded them of the view from their home.

🔴 “We love love love it.
Thank you so much and can’t wait to hang it up on our walls”

The love was mutual. I loved every moment of creating Apple Tree Bay for these dream clients, Ray and Di. To see myself as a conduit for someone else’s wonder and joy—is an extraordinary gift.




Ray and Di came to the studio Art@Rangitane to view their commissioned piece and it was love at first delight 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👨❤️🐝🌈

This piccie was taken before she headed to the framers. Can’t wait to see her in situ in this lovely couple’s stunning Bay of Islands home. Overlooking the sea, surrounded by native bush, the palette of this artwork brings nature inside.

The clients knew exactly what they wanted. They knew the feeling, the energy, the narrative. It was my job to express those ideas in ways that would bring joy and beauty.

It was like honey to a bee to see their reaction and to hear those all-important words:

“We absolutely love it. It’s so beautiful.”

“Looks ah-mazing” -Theresa Stirling, my teacher in all things encaustic, oozed.

Simplification is my favourite art term and is one of the keys to my uplifting abstracts. That, and inspiring washes of colour. Composition is the soul of the painting…in this case, waves of delight, bouncing with joy. I loved working with this blue-green vibe—healing, soothing and revitalising at the same time. Perfect for these unusual dynamics of modern life.

Apple Tree Bay is replacing a black and white painting that the couple owned. ‘It suited our old life, but it’s a bit boring now,” they told me. 

The brief was to create a truly original and totally sensual beeswax artwork that worked with existing paintings, captured the vibe of their sea and bush view, evoked the beauty of hydrangeas—and above all, oozed joy.

Beautifully layered with sensuously sultry glazes of New Zealand beeswax, Apple Tree Bay embodies the new energy of flow, optimism, hope and renewal that our souls ache for after more than two years of pandemic restrictions and this tumultuous, confining time.


 “We love love love it. Thank you so much and can’t wait to hang it up on our walls.”


What’s missing from your walls? Colour? A passion palette that reflects who you are and who you want to be? As we head into a change of season, now is the perfect time to add some joy to your walls. 





I love creating high vibration customized artworks that spark delight.

Art plays a major role in the look and feel of your home. It’s so important to purchase something you love. Would you love to be an art collector but don’t know how to fill the blank walls in your home? In the video below I share Jenny and celebrity chef Jo Seagar’s inspiring story of falling in love with the perfect piece when they visited my studio and gallery, Art@Rangitane, in the Bay of Islands, Kerikeri. You’ll see how perfect my painting, “From Here to Serenity” is in her beautiful home overlooking the river, and how much fun we had hanging the painting in her home.



My commission calendar is full with the next openings from March 2022. Don’t miss out 🌹reach out today if you’d love to learn more about commissioning a truly exquisite, personalized artwork.

🐝🖼I I can work across many different mediums including beeswax, acrylic, oil, mixed media and more.
