Elizabeth Rose CrosbyElizabeth Rose Crosby is a recent BFA graduate and completed her degree at Whitecliffe after gaining early entry as a Year 12 student.Elizabeth is based in West Auckland, where she finds inspiration in the environment of the nearby Waitakere Ranges. She works toward replicating the power of colour against fine linear aspects seen daily in nature. Flowers, birds and other creatures inspire her works, created through experimental combinations of watercolour and ink. The viewer is invited to become immersed in these works in the same way as they might be taken by the details of a feather or a flower petal.
Rosanne CroucherRosanne lives in One Tree Hill, Auckland, and has been painting consistently since commencing her Bachelor of Visual Arts 10 years ago. Her main source of artistic inspiration comes from spending time outdoors in our beautiful country. Photographs from these excursions form the basis of each work, and the painting process refines the composition, accentuates colour and emphasises light. Rosanne paints in oils working with wet paint on one area at a time, giving the paintings a soft, harmonious and dreamy quality.She has won several awards for her paintings and has participated in a range of group and solo exhibitions.

Heather DenisonHeather is a full-time artist who works from her studio in the countryside of Hawkes Bay. Born in Zimbabwe, it was a love of wildlife that lead to a career as an artist. Her inspiration comes from the connection between the natural world and human life. The combination of man-made items with creatures that inhabit the landscape echo the delicate balance that exists.Heather’s work is in private collections locally and overseas, and she was awarded the ‘People’s Choice Award’ at the Art-X National Art Exhibition in Napier in 2016.
Adele EaglesonContemporary artist Adele Eagleson works in oil on canvas. Not restricted by the brush, she will use a variety of tools, mediums and techniques to achieve her desired effect.Adele first picked up a paint brush at art school in 1998 after a corporate career in HR and Banking Management. Exhibitions with established galleries throughout Aotearoa New Zealand followed in 2003, then invitations to exhibit internationally. Adele has works held in private collections both here and overseas, and is currently gallery-represented in Auckland and Wellington.Paintings are allowed to evolve as the paint is worked to create points of interest on the canvas, keeping in mind Adele’s desire to capture a moment in time or a memory of a place. Her current collection plays with landforms and abstract seas.
Lucy EglingtonLucy's paintings have a dark fairytale-like quality. This, combined with a love of Renaissance painting and techniques, results in work that is both rich in detail and narrative. She is chiefly interested in the area where our conscious and subconscious worlds collide - the stories we create for ourselves, the lines between sleep and death, and dreams and hope. She often uses animals allegorically in her work to represent the various facets of our personalities and the human condition. She has works in private collections throughout NZ and internationally, and loves to work on commission.
Sarah FelsSarah lives in Auckland and is an Art teacher at Mount Albert Grammar School. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Canterbury, focusing on photography.She has been working with clay for the last six years and finds that this medium lends itself to infinite possibilities, and that the craft of pottery is one of lifelong learning. She is always looking for new challenges and opportunities to learn – something she feels is important in her role as an educator seeking to inspire students to view learning in the same way. Sarah’s emerging style is one of creating works of art that reflect acceptance of unexpected outcomes, translating into real-life scenarios which require creative problem-solving. She also enjoys presenting her work as sets in which repetition of objects, details or decoration reflect a sense of unity in diversity.
Graham FletcherGraham Fletcher's work explores the critical legacy of the widespread European tradition of housing collections of Oceanic and African Tribal art in domestic settings. Of particular relevance, to an artist of mixed Samoan and European heritage, is the question of how this legacy might be appropriated and subverted within a contemporary Pacific and New Zealand context. Fletcher has exhibited extensively in New Zealand and abroad since he began his career as an artist in the late 1990s. His works are now held in collections around the country, including Te Papa Tongarewa and the James Wallace Arts Trust. Gow Langsford Gallery has represented him since 2014.

Her days are spent marvelling at life’s wonder and joy while making pictures at her Mockingbird Studio.
Sonia FraserThe foundation of Sonia’s work comes from a sense of prehistory; untouched seascapes conveying serene isolation, capturing a sense of the familiar although not necessarily a specific place; and uninhabited landscapes, some with faint impressions of former human presence. Trees are a constant theme of 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, and exhibits and sells her work in several Auckland galleries.
Tomek FriedrichTomek lives in the beautiful Karangahake Gorge near Paeroa. He is a commercial photographer with a passion for landscape and fine art. In his art photography he wishes to convey the beauty and greatness of creation - in nature, people, and the world we live in. He embarks on every project as a new journey of discovery….. the play of light and shadow, colour, form, composition and emotion - and how they are best captured to communicate the story in an image. His work is an invitation to explore the incredible beauty found in the world around us, and inspiration to look deeper into our environment and our own being. Tomek hopes that his photographs can bring a moment of contemplation, insight and happiness into our lives.
Dick FrizzellDick Frizzell’s work has always been characterised by a highly skilled handling of paint and an endlessly inventive range of subject matter and styles: faux-naive New Zealand landscapes, figurative still-life, comic book characters and witty parodies of modernist abstraction. His taste is conveniently broad and he has a penchant for fondly remembered and well-worn clichés. His work also portrays a sense of exuberance, ironic humour and baby-boomer nostalgia. An anti-traditionalist, Frizzell often makes a deliberate effort to mix up the categories of high and low art - poking fun at the intellectualisation of 'high art' and the existential angst of much New Zealand painting in the art culture of his youth.
Deborah FullerBlurring the line between Photography and Painting…Combining a love of photography and mixed media painting, Deborah’s works evoke a feeling of tranquility and calm. Her subject matter often conjures up images of nostalgia and reminiscence. Working as a full-time artisan for the last 19 years she is aware of how much of a privilege it is to be able to spend time creating in a space that feels like home. Deborah is the owner of Lava Gallery in Akaroa, on the Banks Peninsula.
Jody Hope GibbonsBorn in 1966, Jody Hope Gibbons paints full time from her Matakana studio. Her practice is materials based, the research occurs through the actual exploration of the materials used. It pushes the boundaries of traditional painting practice and techniques by exploiting the use of paint, stains, rust, inks, leaf and varnish. The actual application of the mediums and the natural reactions of these products is where the work is made, working within the moment. This alchemy makes them evocative and ethereal, and seemingly organic with the fluidity of the marks.Gibbons has bodies of work from dreamy ethereal landscapes, brighter abstracts and grid like works of reassembling found materials.
