A sunny Sunday afternoon in the garden, loving the summer colours and following this industrious little friend for a while…along with his green little friend.
Some wonderful work was produced from these lovely students – had such a great time – thank you!! Looking forward to taking ‘Building Creative Confidence’ at the Kapiti Women’s Centre at the end of the month. Here is the link…
After all the work and preparation it is wonderful to receive support from the local newspaper…

With nature as a significant influence for both these artists, this exhibition translates the beauty and colour of nature in a collection of jewellery and acrylic paintings.
