Charcoal drawings specializing in portraits.
I have dabbled in art over the years, having used most mediums, but have found my niche in charcoal portraiture over the last couple of years. At present I am doing commission work of both people and animals from photos.

Contemporary Maori Weaving
In 2010, I enrolled in Te Wananga O Aotearoa, a one year course which morphed into a 4 year degree in Te Maunga Kura Toi.I am now living in Whangamata, where I run workshops giving people the opportunity to weave.
My work is constantly inspired by the landscapes around me and the ever changing vistas.
I am mainly weaving in harakeke today, its versatility gives ample opportunity to create inventive pieces within the safety of tikanga.

Learning to weave began a few months after moving to Whangamata in 2015. I began sculpting with fleece (otherwise called needle felting) in November 2020. Learning new techniques will never stop and I am more than happy to share what I learn. I offer workshops – either for showing the basic, or the more advanced techniques of needle felting, coaching participants through a project of their choice. The inspiration around us and online is endless. Workshops are a lot of fun!

Sue is a local artist who loves to explore all kinds of medium in her art. Her current focus is on up-cycling, repurposing and embellishing old pieces of wood to create a 'one of a kind' art piece.
My mixed media works have evolved over the last few years – and perhaps could be described as interdisciplinary mixed media.
Using watercolour, acrylics, oil & Cold Wax Medium, collage and the many different processes used in printmaking to create a unique artwork.
My time spent living in Asia and now in a beautiful coastal environment on the Coromandel also often influences my work.
My work can also be found in The Little Gallery in Whangamata and Tairua.
Studio: Open by appointment at 107 Riverview Rd, Whangamata.
I am a mixed media artist living in Whangamata and have been creating artwork for as long as I can remember! My eclectic style incorporates collage materials and a variety of paint mediums. Acrylic, ink, materials, papers , found objects and rescued wood are used to multi-layer and develop texture throughout my work. I also love corten steel and bring art into the outside in the way of " Solid Statements ". The stunning environment of Whangamata is a recurring homage.

I work at the Community Services in Whangamata and really love my job being a part of helping this community.
I enjoy painting with acrylics and am drawn to coastal themes and faces. My style is vibrant contemporary, sometimes abstract, often blue! Whangamata provides me with vivid inspiration. I also like to bring some of my Cornish background into these paintings and prints.”
