Coffee Break: NZ Art

Coffee Break: NZ Art

"Coffee Break" isn't your typical java-inspired artwork. Oh no, my friends, it's a cheeky little number born from the whimsical mind of Hamilton artist Collette. 

Picture this: a gallery where the tipple of choice is wine, sipped from coffee cups in a playful charade of caffeine indulgence. While this masterpiece has cosied up in its forever home, fear not; you can snag an original Boozehag painting to call your own. Just have a casual chat with Collette and let the artful banter begin.

Now, let's waltz into the lively world that is Chardonnay Minx, where wine doesn't just belong in glasses—it's all about the wine cup revelry. This vibrant series, curated by the imaginative genius of Collette Fergus, finds its roots in a fortuitous evening of laughter and libations with a fun-loving friend. 

Boozehag, or as we fondly call her, Chardonnay Minx, steps forth as a charismatic, almost cartoon-like character.

Channelling mischievous vibes a la pre-existing Lisa Simpson and a dash of unapologetic boozy glamour straight out of "Absolutely Fabulous," Chardonnay Minx embodies the spirit of swirling wine and the pursuit of unbridled joyfulness.

Jump into the Boozehag series on the last pages of SOLD ARTWORKS, where wine and merriment intertwine, inviting you to revel in the sheer delight of Collette's artistic expression.

Get ready to turn your sipping routine on its head with this cheeky Wine Cup Wonder, inspired by the playful spirit of Chardonnay Minx. Why be ordinary when you can be fabulously audacious? Grab your favourite wine cup (who needs a glass?), and let's concoct a sip-worthy blend that'll have you toasting to the whimsical side of life.


  • 1 cup of your preferred wine (red or white, the choice is yours!)
  • 1 splash of sparkling water (for that effervescent kick)
  • 1 tablespoon of mixed berries (because we're feeling fancy)
  • A twist of orange peel (for that citrusy zing)
  • Ice cubes (optional, but we're all about keeping it cool)


  1. Cup O' Fun: Take your chosen wine cup—yes, the one you'd usually reserve for water or, dare we say, coffee. Let's redefine its purpose!
  2. Pour the Magic: Pop open your favourite bottle of wine and pour a generous cupful into your chosen vessel. Let your taste buds guide the way in red, white, or even rosé.
  3. Fizz It Up: Add a splash of sparkling water to the mix. This adds a bit of effervescence and takes the fanciness up a notch.
  4. Berry Bliss: Toss in a tablespoon of mixed berries. The burst of flavours will dance on your palate, making every sip a fruity delight.
  5. Citrusy Twist: Take that orange peel and literally twist it. Drop it into your wine cup for a zesty kick. It's like a mini fiesta in your cup!
  6. On the Rocks (or Not): If you're feeling extra chill, throw in a few ice cubes. Keep it cool; keep it fun.
  7. Stir & Sip: Give a gentle stir to mingle the flavours, and sip away. Cheers to embracing the unconventional and savouring the joy in every cup!


Feeling even more adventurous? Experiment with different fruits, herbs, or even a hint of your favourite liqueur to elevate your wine cup wonder to new heights. The key here is to have fun, channel your inner Boozehag, and let the wine cup become a vessel for your spirited escapades. Cheers to sipping outside the lines!
