Bali Views

 Roof top wander, Acrylic on Canvas

The view from my father's out door kitchen. Just before the monkey arrived to steal mangoes. The light was incredible here. Full of smokey incense and sun baked dreams.




 Blue nude on fire, watercolour on paper

I painted this at a life model session in Ubud, Bali. There's something magical about painting in an art studio and looking out the window to see shimmering rice terraces. Then again, perhaps it was the coconut wine laced green tea we were sipping. 


 Untitled, Water colour on paper

This I painted at Pranoto's Gallery in the rice fields from a model. I was enamoured with her beautiful woven sarong.

Let's colour!


I am so pleased to announce that the Ted Harrison Foundation has released a colouring book.
It was my pleasure to be a part of this project.



'Written by longtime friend B.G. Bergh and illustrated by artist Freyja Zazu (who painted with Harrison), this new colouring book follows Stan, a charming totem owl as he collects adventures on a warm summer's day. The loose lyrical lines are highly reminiscent of Ted Harrison's own style and encourage users to question where one colour should end and another begin!
Ted Harrison passed away in 2015 but left behind his gift of seeing our World as a beautiful and colourful place. Ted formed the Ted Harrison Foundation, a registered Canadian Charity to enable children to visit that World as well. Ted wanted children to see things however they wanted. A dog could be purple or a moose pink. Ted thought that art came from one's soul, since it is not bound up by an rules. It was his opinion that art was a major force in a child's mental development and confidence. We hope that this colouring book will be a creative inspiration to many.'

Milk and Honey




 Life, newly-hatched, is fragile.  It is often cut short by the shoes of a wayfarer, and is quick to wither in the shade of nearby oak tree.  Some life flourishes and takes root in the juicy womb of soft soil.  But most life silently disappears without having been seen by any eye.  Life abounds in the belly of death and death, overcome.
