Melrose Artworks

img_3928

YAY! 2 of my beautiful artworks on exhibition at Melrose House Cafe in Nelson, SOLD. I have now created these 3 gorgeous new pieces. Inspiration came easily for these works – the large green orb with folk inspired birds is my personal fave as I am in LOVE with lush green, pink & mustard.
Pink Floral Cluster – whenever I created a floral piece like this, it really is just a process of letting my creativity flow. I dont plan the structure of it, or what flowers Ill use. I focus on the balance of colours. I love not knowing what the outcome will be!
Tui – The kids and I were at our family bach and Tui kept swooping by us and landing on a nearby fig tree. I love the organic wonky leaf shapes of a fig so this idea for an artwork was handed to me, I simply had to notice it.

If you’re in Nelson, Melrose House is a must-visit spot. A perfect floral setting for a coffee!

Rainy Sunday

IMG_3643 IMG_3648 IMG_3649 IMG_3654 IMG_3656

Sunday we explored. Overcast, raindrops & drizzly.
Hey bloggers…Its been forever since I did a personal post on here – or even posted much at all. I’ve considered getting back in to blogging and on some days, closing this site completely. But I love what is on here too much – and I’d feel sad completely leaving!
A lot has changed since I was last really on here. So I’m starting fresh! I want it to be more open & treated as a diary – rather than just a place to share art & crafts (with nothing much about me).
So for starters…my lovely readers…let me introduce you to Nick. He’s a brilliant photographer, dad (2 sweet little boys that I get to be the ‘cool mumma’ around) and is super hipster, creative, clever…the list really does go on. You can check out his photography here.
He’s the major reason I’m back on here blogging. On Sunday we explored and I finally felt the urge to get behind my camera again. I LOVE black & white images so much…so maybe that is what it will mainly be about.

We’ve been through a heck of a lot together since we met… There are things I want to share in time.
But for now…heres us!

My latest original artworks are now up on Etsy. These are the last from 2015! What a huge year it has been. I often miss blogging as much on here. Sometimes day to day life just has to take over other areas. I’m hoping that 2016 will bring more time for art, blogging & Clouds of Colour developments!
