This year I decided to be a visitor of Open Studios Waitakere 2019 rather than an exhibiting artist.
I was not disappointed with my decision.
I think every artist should participate in an arts trail when they can.

I got an email recently from Rachel Lewis from She Owns it and quite frankly, it was the kick up the bum I needed. Sorry, but...

As you know I like to experiment on a Friday night, with a live audience. What can I say, I'm clearly an out on the edge artist. Or simply mad. Let's not think about this for too long and move on.
I thought it would be riveting (I'm not sure who for) to do a book revie...

I can’t recall the first time I set foot on Piha beach, perhaps it was because I felt so at home.
