23 - 25 February 2024 will be the inaugural event of this amazing free art trail, and we hope you will come along and meet over 80 artists on the trail who are opening their studio doors to their community.
I am super excited to be opening my studio to the public for the first time as part of an art trail, and am very proud and honoured to be one of the five hard working artists along with Nicola Welten, Constanza Briceno, Shona Mackenzie and Tracey Finch behind the creation of this amazing event.
My friend potter Jane Clark who will be noted on the map as location # 37 will be sharing my studio space and will be creating alongside me over the weekend.
Maps are available at various outlets around the bay, or can be looked up on line or printed from the event website. Check the details on https://www.bopopenstudios.co.nz/map
Those of you who know my work will be used to seeing my bold and flowing botanical paintings. Recently my stuff has taken on a bit of a surrealist feel at times, so there are lots of new ideas colours and impressions I will be sharing with you. I will be in the process of creating a new work over the weekend so that you can see my process.
And for those who like things a little more realistic I also have some of my Land and Sea series on display, which will keep you safely in your comfort zone if that's where you prefer to be!
I'm so looking forward to seeing you all during the weekend 23-25 February and sharing my passion with you!
