Painting is my passion and has become my fulltime focus so I am honoured and humbled to receive Awards for work I have loved producing.

Art Competitions, in particular the Easter Show are fantastic opportunities for quality emerging and professional artists from all over New Zealand to present and compete together.  The wide range of painting methods and ideas are brilliant and enthralling and there are always a superbly high standard of entries.
