Who are we?

We are Alan and Ellen Hodgetts, husband and wife visual artist sweethearts!  SweetArts is the name under which we collaborate on various creative projects, and this is the place where we share our artistic shenanigans with you!  If you enjoy what you see and would like to get in touch, email us at sweetarts@xtra.co.nz

Alan also produces music under the alias, Manzo, and his debut album 'Ultramarine' launched in January 2016.  He is currently working on his second album, so watch this space for more details.

Here are a few examples of our 1.2 metre megadiscs!  To create the effects you see, we spin the disks at incredibly high speeds.
