The gallery has been updated to include several paintings by New Zealand artists that I have. Watercolour and oil paintngs by John Barr Clarke Hoyte, Olivia Spencer Bower, Ken Hunt and Jack Register were uploaded. I guess adding a New Zealand art section is somewhat of a departure from the focus of the website. However, part of my intention behind setting it up was to record my personal collection and it wasn’t worthwhile setting up a new site for a small number of non-Japanese artworks.
JBC Hoyte and Olivia SPencer-Bower would probably be internationally known but Jack Register and Ken Hunt are more (NZ) local. If you’d like to see more works by Ken Hunt he has his own website at http://www.kenhunt.org/.
If you interested in NZ art works then searching on google.co.nz is a good starting point and good auction sites include TradeMe (the ‘eBay’ of NZ), International Art Centre, Watsons Auctions and Webbs.
The International Art Centre website in particular has a great current and previous auction results section which is useful for price research and discovering new artists and art-works
Incredible! I’m really enjoying the design of your website. Are you using a custom theme or is this readily available to all users? If you don’t want to
say the name of it out in the general public, please make sure to contact me.
I’d absolutely love to get my hands on this template! Appreciate it.

The site uses the free WordPress theme Suffusion with its Minima skin and for the gallery pages its uses the NextGEN Gallery plugin with a few CSS tweaks.
