Artwork Description

I had to travel and work in Auckland by myself for a while. Sometimes it got a bit lonely working away from home. Luckily it was in spring and I lived very close to the rose garden in Parnell. I had never seen so many varieties of roses and the blossoms and sweet scent of the roses were divine. Roses are part of my sweet memories of my life in New Zealand.

I spent a week in Bathurst attending workshops and drove out every morning and evening to the countryside. I loved every moment: Kangaroos jumping around in the vineyards, trees standing tall in the most beautiful evening light, horses and cows grazing leisurely in the fields.  This is the morning before I left, soft fog rolling in the distance hills, grape vines spreading out in front of my eyes.  So beautiful that my heart aches at the thought of leaving.  I promised myself I will go back :)

I used to visit friends in Provence every summer.  How I love those carefree long summer days driving around the lavender fields, sunflower fields, meadows of red poppies and all sorts of wild flowers, visiting local markets full of gorgeous colours and fresh produces. What’s more Aussie than spending the long summer days at the beach?New Zealand South Island is stunningly beautiful in autumn.  Wanaka is one of my favourite places in the South Island.
