Looking for something rare or unusual? My Art Shed is where I store pieces that are perhaps prototypes, or not your run-of-the- mill exhibition pieces. They are stored in my Art Shed for further contemplation on their way to a new home be it by deconstruction, a repaint, a touch up or finding a new owner in their present form. Eventually the Shed cannot hold any more pieces without risk of exploding so I invite you to have a quiet peruse and see which piece you may like to adopt. All works are ready to hang or display.
To Purchase or enquire about any of the works on this page please contact me to confirm pricing and shipping rates. Prices are in New Zealand Dollars. Purchases can be made using Credit Card, Paypal and for New Zealand residents – Cash or Direct Credit to bank account.
