I donated this original award winning painting to Tikokino Primary School in Central Hawke's Bay for their Charity Auction, on Dec 2nd, which sold for $2,000. The event was a huge win for this small rural school, raising $10,157 for the resurfacing of the sports ground. Established in 1866, four generations of my family went to Tikokino Primary. At present - my two nieces. My grandfather, a young child in the 1920’s rode there on horseback, as they did in those days.

I am stoked that my artwork “Solace” was included in the Impressions National Art Awards Exhibition and received the win for the inaugural “Best Pastel Painting”. Double stoked and very thankyou to the kind voters that it also received the NBS People’s Choice Prize.
