About Me

From leaving school I ventured into the world of glass design and construction, gaining the qualification of a New Zealand Flat Glass Trade Certificate.

Having an artistic mindset led me to using the product to create an extensive range of designer glass works over the span of fifteen years.

Following the experience in the glass industry I returned to full time study for five years to gain a Diploma in Architectural Design and a Bachelor Degree in Applied Arts.

Academic study has given me a passion for modern technology. Coupling this passion with an understanding of the ancient product of glass, I am investigating the potential of glass in the sculptural field. Areas of focus at present are light reflection, refraction and projection.

I also enjoy drawing, painting, graphic design and photography.

Born in Wellington, schooled on the West Coast and adopted by Southland. My blood line is Waikawa Marae in Picton (Te Atiawa) and my father was a Maori carver. I'm a painter, using mostly acrylic and mixed media, occasionally doing portraits in oil and I dabble in small scale sculpture.

I co-founded an art studio for people with disabilites 7 years ago called C.S. Art. We have just finished an exhibition at the Community Gallery at the Southland Museum where 25 artists exhibited (likely next exhibition same venue in 2012). I also work for Southland Education as an art tutor with the adult program on Esk St and the Kidzart program in the school holidays.

About Me

Courtney currently paints from home in Gore NZ, where she currently lives with her husband John and son Thomas. A love of God, craft, art and her surroundings has led to a developing journey of artwork ranging from the more serious exploration of portraiture, to lighter whimsical and imaginative scenes.

Currently the majority of work is completed in acrylics. While motherhood and domestic goddess life take most of her time, art is snuck in to any free minute as a portfolio and collection are established

About Me

My work is about a show of warmth and understanding. 

A sensitive genuine engagement with the subject.

Each drawing and painting shows what I admire and love to share.

They reveal and confirm my experiences.

Show my discoveries and reflection.

My hope is that they engage the viewer.

Translating my thoughts and visions into paint is a most personal revelation

and always a challenge.
