Arwen Flowers
Arwen FlowersArwen Flowers is a New Zealand artist who grew up in Waitākere, near the beautiful ranges, forests and beaches of the west coast of Auckland. After finishing high school she completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Elam, specialising in painting and photography. Since then, Arwen has developed a flexible, multi-media approach to her art practice, which is motivated by a desire to recycle and re-purpose second-hand materials. Arwen's creative impulse is centered around themes of collecting, exploration, navigation, migration, and South Pacific/European identity and femininity. In her body of work - painting, collage, prints and alternative photography - she often references landscape and oceanic forms. She uses poetry and a love of music to help develop her ideas.Arwen Flowers' studio is located in Helensville, Auckland.
Hannah Fouhy
Hannah FouhyHannah Fouhy is currently completing her Master of Fine Arts at Elam in Auckland. She is primarily interested in the presence given to a space and uses traditional darkroom techniques to develop her black and white silver gelatin photographs. The underlying presence of a landscape is crucial as it means the world the viewer attends or connects to is not a static or indifferent one. With a fascination and love for the land, Hannah seeks to explore the overarching emotional attachment from those that inhabit or pass through the landscape.
Barbara Franklet
Barbara FrankletBarbara Franklet has been a professional artist for over 20 years. Her charming oil pastels hang throughout the world and can be found in the Fort Worth Library, Dallas Children’s Hospital and numerous other public spaces. Her work is inspired by her love of illustration, graphic design and folk art. Originally a printmaker, she now works predominantly in oil pastels and mixed media. Born in Houston, Texas, Barbara moved to beautiful Nelson in 2008. Her days are spent marvelling at life’s wonder and joy while making pictures at her Mockingbird Studio.
Sonia Fraser
Sonia FraserThe foundation of Sonia’s work comes from a sense of prehistory: untouched seascapes which convey serene isolation, capturing a sense of the familiar while not necessarily depicting a specific place; uninhabited landscapes, some with faint impressions of former human presence. Trees are a constant theme in her work and are either shown from a bird's-eye perspective, giving a sense of the abstract to otherwise recognisable imagery, or anchored against stormy skies, struggling with the elements.Sonia lives in the Mahurangi region and has an Advanced Diploma of Art and Design. She exhibits and sells her work in several Auckland galleries.

Neala Glass
Neala GlassNeala Glass is an Auckland-based artist who works with drawing and printmaking processes. Characterised by a monochromatic palette, Neala's work features delicate surface details, subtle tonal variations, and compelling compositions that utilise the potential of negative space. Through her figurative work, Neala examines the intricacies of the human condition, often with a deeper focus on psychology. The figure pose is a way of communicating narrative, mood, emotion and tension. These figures are simultaneously realistic and metaphoric; both believable subjects in themselves and vehicles for symbolism and broader narratives.Neala's drawings on canvas are rendered in charcoal, pastel and graphite with technical precision; her works on paper are rendered in ink and applied with a looser approach. Neala Glass gained her Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Elam School of Fine Arts. She exhibits her work in galleries around New Zealand.

Lisa Grennell
Lisa GrennellLisa Grennell was born in Timaru in 1973 and graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design in Nelson in 2010. Now living in rural Glenhope in the South Island, Lisa’s studio sits high on a hill surrounded by 42 acres of pasture and native forest. Inspired by her experience of motherhood and passion for nature, Lisa’s work uses imagery of children with flowers, animals and insects. She questions young people’s view of the world, seeing modern technology as the cause of a disconnection from nature. Lisa emphasises this with her use of large white vacant space, creating a cavity in which her subjects float. This is the artist’s expression of the uncertainty of our future; it cannot be foreseen. She also likes to involve the viewer in the work via its reflective surface. By looking and reading, the gaze is returned, the spectator becomes the narrative and, in turn, part of the problem and solution.
Belinda Griffiths
Belinda GriffithsBelinda Griffiths is a conceptual figurative artist based in Auckland. Working within the disciplines of painting and printmaking, her art explores the expressive potential of the gestural mark. Belinda was the recipient of the Molly Morpeth Canaday Award in 2010, and the Estuary Art Award in 2013. She has been a finalist in the Wallace Art Awards, the NZ Print and Printmaker Awards, and the Adam Portraiture Awards. Her work is held in a number of private and public art collections.

Morgan Hancock
Morgan HancockRaised in Taranaki, Morgan Hancock is a full-time graphic designer and part-time illustrator now based in Auckland. Many of her drawings and designs are inspired by fashion and popular culture. Born in the 1990s and always having been influenced by 80s and 90s fashion, Morgan draws clothes she would have personally wanted for herself but never had. Incorporating quintessential kiwi icons within her work, she creates a feeling of nostalgia and memories of her kiwi childhood in Aotearoa. Pen, pencil and acrylic paint are predominant materials, but subtle embroidered stitching is also utilised to create an element of surprise… the ‘Aha!’ moment when people realise it is thread instead of paint.
Brendon & Jane Harley
Brendon & Jane Harley Brendon and Jane Harley are a husband and wife team from Nelson. They design and create metal art and sculpture for New Zealand homes and gardens. They especially enjoy working with corten steel: the rust takes on its own life and aspect, each sculpture differing slightly from the last. Brendon and Jane enjoy creating high quality, original artwork - both striking and bold contemporary designs that make a statement, as well as more subtle, elegant and rustic pieces which nestle into New Zealand gardens and landscapes. They design and craft all of their art together, using sustainable New Zealand materials.
Justine Hawksworth
Justine HawksworthJustine Hawksworth holds a Fine Arts degree from Elam and is trained as a secondary school art and design teacher. Now working from her studio in Mt Eden, she produces limited edition fine art prints and paintings using a range of materials - predominantly acrylic, pencil and copper on nautical charts and maps. Justine’s work can be found in galleries throughout New Zealand as well as pieces held in both New Zealand and international collections. She is constantly inspired by our New Zealand native flora and fauna, our land and sea, holidays in the classic kiwi bach and the things we collect there to create memories.
Hoch+Green
Hoch+GreenJulie Green and Gina Hochstein’s 20-year friendship has developed into a wonderful creative collaboration. They contribute a similar creative aesthetic but different skills to their partnership, challenging the viewer’s perception of the humdrum of the everyday. As mums they struggle with the day-to-day conflict which our lifestyle on this planet brings and wrestle with what the future holds for our children. In their recent portrait series ‘Rogue Blossoms’, they have created hugely personal portraits of family and friends in a format influenced by Victorian portrait paintings. According to HOCH+GREEN, their journey working together has been both exhilarating and liberating.
Hugo Harvey
Hugo HarveyHugo Harvey is a former Mount Albert Grammar School student currently in his third year of a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture at the University of Auckland. He is interested in the contrast of figures and architecture through the lenses of colour and form. Hugo primarily uses dry brushing and careful mixing to soften the appearance of his paintings. Between his studies and free time he has been teaching painting with the Fine Young Artists programme for schools and working to develop his abilities further. This is his fifth year with the Mount Albert Grammar School Art Show.
Nicola Jackson
Nicola JacksonNicola Jackson is an artist and printmaker originally from the United Kingdom. She now works from her studio in Wellington. Using a combination of screen printing, collage and painting, Nicola’s works are an extension of her previous life as a successful print designer, selling work to companies such as Marc Jacobs, Disney, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein. Her work is inspired by her love of the coast, mark making, layering and colour. Each piece is original and unique.
Stuart Jobling
Stuart JoblingStuart Jobling’s recent work has been influenced by living by the sea. He works with hand-painted textured paper which he fashions into rocks and tree bark. Stuart has been a finalist in the Walker and Hall Waiheke Art Award and the Waitakere Art Awards.
Tim Jones
Tim JonesTim Jones is a painter specialising in large format contemporary and abstract works. His bold style blends colour and form in an expressive, purposeful way that invites a certain reflection from the viewer. Subtle hues and strong undertones compliment each other in these works exploring emotion and philosophy. He has been painting and exhibiting for over ten years and has combined his art career with work on yachts. Travelling extensively - circumnavigating the world - continues to influence his work with strong reference to the elements.
Anna Khomko
Anna KhomkoAnna Khomko is a watercolour artist from Moscow. After travelling the world, Anna settled in Auckland in 2017, attracted by the natural beauty of New Zealand. She is still fascinated by the variety of life to be found in our environment, the driving force behind her painting. Inspiration for her abstract landscapes and organic sketches comes from observing the environment and the life within it. Painting is a vital process for Anna – it is research, meditation, a visual expression of emotions captured through the medium of watercolour. Anna also uses her artistic approach in floristry and photography and never misses a opportunity to paint outdoors while exploring new places.
Vera Limmer
Vera LimmerVera Limmer lives on the west coast of Auckland, where she has painted her landscapes for 20 years. Painting is in many ways an organic process for her. Her inspiration comes from our environment, the New Zealand forest and bush. Each piece of work starts with an idea, careful planning, drawing and an open-minded vision. It evolves with cutting, shaping, paint and patterns emerging in a decorative piece of work, with visible lines and brushstrokes. Vera’s painting technique allows paint and colour to move, sometimes freely, sometimes controlled by the artist. Vera Limmer’s work is available in art galleries in the North Island.
Maria Lloyd
Maria LloydMaria Lloyd is fascinated by ancient civilisations, their cultures and how they created ceremonial art forms and objects to distinguish themselves and document their histories. Maria seeks to replicate that sense of wonder and mystery through cross-cultural exploration of our origins, our ancestors and the land. We can learn more about ourselves by unravelling their mysteries - the symbolism in her work creates a universal language with which to decode them. Maria’s deep respect for artistic traditions is reflected in the beading, sewing, carving and bronze work in her designs, while the graphic and narrative nature of her pieces is informed by her formal graphic design background. Maria is hands-on and produces all her work at her foundry on Waiheke Island. Her sculptures have found homes both locally and internationally.
