Description:  In March, 2017, I “showed up” for 2 weeks as ‘Art in Residence’ at Lochmara Lodge, Queen Charlotte Sounds just outside of Picton, New Zealand. Lochmara Lodge is more than just a place to stay, its where I relaxed, explored and experienced the magic of the Marlborough Sounds. They have an amazing set up with gorgeous views, nature walks, wildlife to ART in the Gallery!!!! I hand-feed Native Parakeets and stingrays, walked some of the nature trails and enjoyed the surrounds that they offered while I went into their Art Studio every day to work.

The creative process I worked through during the residency required me to slow down with my work, and take time to enjoy and watch the Encaustic come alive for me. I had to “show up” while each layer of hot wax required my patience which I sometime do not have!! This series shows images  from Lochmara Lodge’s new Underwater Observatory enables you to go below the surface and observe the marine life down below the water.
