Painting pregnancy... mother, baby and child...

celebrating  the feminine...

                       ...an honour and a privilege.

Returning home to New Zealand in 1993 from an inspirational and challenging (of course) 3 years in Europe, to my love Stewart Gunn we began our family living near the foothills of the Southern Alps in Canterbury. Once Lucy and Fergus were school aged, I returned to my art practice graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree (University of Canterbury) in 2009 and furthered this with a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Teaching; exhibiting in the same year at the Brooke Gifford Gallery along side Bill Hammond.

I will always be an artist; it feels great to have a growing collection of original works held in private homes in New Zealand, England, France, Switzerland and the U.S.A.
