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.

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.
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.
Justine HawksworthJustine Hawksworth holds a Fine Arts degree from Elam and is trained as a secondary school art and design teacher.

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.
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.
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 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.
