Sand in the Apricot Jam reaches funding target on Pledgeme

Great news my Pledgeme crowdfunding campaign was successful! I reached my funding target so I can now cover the costs to send the exhibition from New Zealand to Israel for exhibition in November.

If you are interested in a Limited Edition print there are still a few copies available. Or if you’d like a set of postcards there are some available too, please contact me on the address on the poster here. Please note the prices are in NZD$ and there is an additional charge for international freight.SITAJ-limited-edition-print-flyerSITAJ-postcards-flyer

Artist residency at Samuel Marsden Collegiate

I’m really look forward to being the 2017 artist in residence at Samuel Marsden Collegiate in Wellington, NZ. While there I’ll be doing an extension of my Grimm Project and working with the students in workshops and master classes. We’ll be looking at visual story telling and composite painting and generally having a great time exploring ideas!

Please Help to Spread ‘Sand in the Apricot Jam’ WWI Artwork to Israel

I have been invited to show ‘Sand in the Apricot Jam‘ at the Museum of Rishon LeZion, Israel in November 2017.
The exhibition on the NZ Mounted Riflemen is scheduled to coincide with the centenary of 2 significant WW1 battles – but I need your help make it happen.

Friday 17th February: My PledgeMe crowd funding campaign is now live! Please check out my campaign and pledge towards a range of different rewards. It would be awesome if you could spread the word about it too! 

The Countdown!

3days

3 days until the launch of my PledgeMe campaign, so I thought it was fitting to remember the 3 battles of Gaza (represented here in the detail of Panel 3).
The first and second were disastrous for the allied forces. The 3rd though was a victory where they gained control over the all important wells at Beersheba. Access to water was vital and could make the difference between success and failure in the desert environment.

4days

It’s only 4 days until the launch of my PledgeMe campaign and what a fitting number to start the countdown I thought – why? you ask…
Well, the NZ Mounted Rifles operated in groups of 4, my grandfather Jack was in the 4th group of the 4th Waikato Squadron. This is why there are currently 4 paintings in the Sand in the Apricot Jam exhibition.
