Latest Commission finished!

I was delighted to be commissioned by the Auckland Botanic Gardens to paint a watercolour of Hebe 'Wiri Mist' for their 40th year celebrations. The completed artwork and limited edition prints were delivered to the gardens last week.

 

It will feature on the cover of their next 'Friends of the Gardens' newsletter and prints will be available from them in the

near future.
