Apple Tree Bay


This bespoke piece was commissioned by a couple as a ‘statement piece’ to adorn the large white walls of their newly refurbished Bay of Islands home. The brief was to create a truly original and totally sensual beeswax artwork that worked with existing paintings, captured the vibe of their sea and bush view, evoked the beauty of hydrangeas—and above all, oozed joy.
Beautifully layered with sensuously sultry glazes of New Zealand beeswax, Apple Tree Bay embodies the new energy of flow, optimism, hope and renewal that our souls ache for after more than two years of pandemic restrictions and this tumultuous, confining time.
I was delighted when the couple came to view the finished work in my studio Art@Rangitane and it was love at first delight 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👨❤️🐝🌈.

“We love love love it. Thank you so much and can’t wait to hang it up on our walls.”
