1000 Native Trees planted by end of 2026

My big project for 2024-25 is to get 1000 native trees planted in New Zealand. 

I will do that through: 

  • Art workshops for corporate businesses

  • Art Retreats 

  • When a paintings sells

  • When a sculpture/vessel sells, where I have used acrylic paint

You can see my progress here:

Gallery Show

Two artists and their journey into abstract expressionism. Paintings by Olivia Courtney & Maria Owens.


Olivia Courtney & Maria Owens are two artists - painters, who capture with gestural brushstroke and colour the emotional landscape of a moment in time. Rather than present us with the painted reality of an experience, they have relied on abstraction, the process of painting itself to help them make connections to memory, to communicate the depth of their feelings in relation to this placed point in time.
