What guides you - limited edition print

A fine art giclée reproduction of an original watercolour artwork. Edition range is 25 total.

Printed with exceptional quality inks that are light fast for 100 years. This print is such an incredible reproduction it's hard to tell it apart from the original.


Sweeping movement and allure draws you into the darkness while the rich tonal browns contrast against the light areas evoking hope. A journey awaits but are you willing to face the challenges along the way?

Inspired by the rolling hills of the Pisa Range in Central Otago this print encourages you to...

Always be open…
to possibility, joy and hope
and you will be rewarded with an inner peace
that guides and grounds you.

To reach this point is never about the completion, its always about the journey of discovery. Thats where I learn.

It's where my creativity blossoms.

Even when I haven't created for months.

It's still growing inside of me.

Then it comes back stronger than ever.

I give thanks

I walk

I notice

I rest

I think (maybe too much sometimes)

I stop thinking

I just be

I stay open

Then the world expands

I feel joy

I relish small moments like they are big moments

I see things with clarity

I reflect on what I've experienced

Then I see how things really are

Thoughts of impossibility feel possible

I'm filled with hope

Then action

Then that action turns to daily action

And it grows

It feels aligned

And peace becomes my anchor

Guiding me to

Always be open.

Filled with hope I go forward and enter through my days with confidence and commitment. But then I forget. I become fixated and blurred at the same time. I call on that inner peace I had worked so hard to cultivate and I ask it to come back. I call out for hope, I call it in. I nurture it so it stays with me.

I look for joy in the unlikeliest of places. I always find it. It's not hard but it IS a practice. One that I must constantly strive for now that I know
'There is always hope'
