Ochre Art Supplies

We rescued our little local art supplies shop! 

This is a wonderful project. 

Shop for Art Supplies here

Sculpture Play 3D

A long love of reductive sculpting has lead to sharing this work with novice and experienced sculptors.

Sculptures, commissions and Oamaru stone sales continue.


Do-i is a Place for Doing. 

The Do-i concept is about nurturing Creatives to offer their skills as recreational experiences.

We bring this together in offering events, workshops and lessons where the public can Relax, Reskill and Recharge.


Creatives need Flash Retail

I love to help other creatives bring their work to an art adoring public!

Keep an eye on us for events and pop-ups.

And, of course I already have some treasures for you 

Thistleburn Pottery

Busting to play with mud has finally worked out to have a space and the tools to live the dream.

More updates soon!

Pica Collection

Glass and tile continue to fascinate me. 

The way these materials can be used to tell a story and how the reveal pops has always kept my creative attention.

Hoarding bright shiny things shows us that the magpie in my spirit is strong 

Saw-did Details

Here a passion for recycling shows again. With an 'in' to the window industry we try to keep timbers from going to landfill. 

Keep an eye on our projects that use reclaimed timber and also upcycled joinery.

Own Grown

Raised in a family where Dad fed us from the vege gardening and Mum was sought after for her landscaping prowess, I couldn't help but love plants.

I love succulents & houseplants, and have a bit of a homesteader's bent that may lead to self sufficiency one day.



Creativity gives us freedom!

In the same way that confidence gives us freedom, I think creativity makes us able to cause change in our lives. The practice of a creative process primes our world view to openness. In this openness we are more able to strike upon solutions.

Creativity is kin to Ecology!

In the same way that frugality sits opposite to waste, I see a creative response as a way to lessen our footprint on our ecology. Where we can engage creativity to meet our recreation and functional needs we have a real opportunity to design and take responsibility for how our actions impact the world around us.

Creativity changes people & it is people who change the world.

The next best time is right now.

Don’t put off your own creative response any longer!
