Enseñarás a volar… pero no volarán tu vuelo.
Enseñarás a soñar… pero no soñarán tus sueños.
Enseñarás a vivir… pero no vivirán tu vida.
Enseñarás a cantar… pero no cantarán tu canción.
Enseñarás a pensar… pero no pensarán como tú.
Pero sabrás que cada vez que ellos vuelen, sueñen,vivan, canten y piensen…
¡Estará en ellos la semilla del camino enseñado y aprendido!
(Madre Teresa de Calcuta)

You will teach them to fly, but they won’t be flying your journey.
You will teach them to dream, but they won’t be dreaming your dreams.
You will teach them how to live, but they won’t live your life.
However, in each flight, in each life, in each dream, the imprint of the path you have laid down will last.
(St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta)

Exciting projects coming up this year

Posted by on Apr 16, 2014 in General, paintings, Prints, screen printing | Comments Off on Exciting projects coming up this year

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the owner of a beautiful gallery in our area asking if I wanted to exhibit with them. Which gallery? i will give you a couple of clues… it’s cozy, based in Upper Moutere, they sell the best jams in the area… it used to be a post office? :-)
As I was planning to participate in the 100 days project with my friend Georgia Barber we asked Jo Costar (the owner) if she would like to exhibit our work from this project and she was excited to do so. We will be announcing the definite dates very soon, but it will probably be from September till November this year. Thank you Jo from The Old Post Office Shop.

Last week I was also offered to exhibit in the Reflections Art Gallery at the World of Wearable Art Museum with Barbara Franklet and Emma Moncrieff. Dates haven’t been confirmed but it will probably be in November this year till December. I am very excited about this opportunity.

Just one more thing… I have recently won a competition. I am waiting to get permission to show you pictures and tell you what it is. Want a clue? whales are involved… :-)

And as I can’t still show you any images here are some I took yesterday on the way from Christchurch to Nelson. I am thankful to this amazing country for accepting me as I am and for helping me grow as an artist. I have never felt more at home.

Freedom is happiness

Posted by on Feb 6, 2014 in screen printing | Comments Off on Freedom is happiness

Last month I went to Farewell Spit with my friend Georgia to help a pod of whales that had stranded in the beach.  The experience was very intense, too intense to explain with a few words, but it inspired me to create this series of screen prints.

Danny helped me with the printing.  We might have been too ambitions running a four layer print after not having printed anything this complex for a few years.  We started out with 20 and I still don’t know how many will end up signed, not many… but I am sure a few will be available on my online shop soon. :)

I forgot to say, I am a medic for Project Jonah.  They are an awesome organization.  You can also help, visit their website here.

I have written an article in Spanish about my experience, if you are interested you can read it here.
