About Us


Gone Potty is another creation by Central Otago-based artist Bridget Paape.

Bridget is full of creative energy and never happier than when in her studio with a paintbrush.

"I've done real estate, cafe ownership and worked in hotels, but I've always come back to art."

“My work has gone to many countries world-wide. I love colour, and so my paintings are bright and with a happy theme. Probably my personality coming out, I would never paint if I'm having a bad day!”

Bridget moved to Dunedin in 2015 with her daughter Poppy and they set up shop in April.  It’s not her first foray into retail, she also owned a gallery with her mother in Arrowtown.  .

Recently Bridget has relocated back to Central Otago and plans to open her new gallery in the upcoming months.   Watch this space !!

Meanwhile she is happy to do ceramic or painting commissions .  Feel free to send her a message.
