Rebecca TuneRebecca Tune is a full time artist and graphic designer working from her Auckland studio.Her art revolves around her interest in the ways paint can be manipulated, layered and stripped back to both hide and reveal small gem-like images, flashes of colour, and movement beneath a plain surface. This becomes a dance of chance, control and surprise - of knowing when to let the paint flow where it wants, or when to reign it in and manipulate it into a space that is readable, poetic and eye-catching.Rebecca exhibits nationally and has work displayed in international collections. She is a regular supporter of the annual Artists In Eden auction, and is a Mount Albert Grammar School parent.
Fiona TunnicliffeFiona Tunnicliffe has been a potter for about 30 years. Her beautiful pieces almost always use animal forms as a starting point, mostly horses and lately, rabbits. She loves the qualities of clay, texture and surface detail, and its ability to take on a life of its own. Each of her rather special formed ceramic animals seems to exude its own unique personality, enhanced by the textures, pattern, text and relief work to its coat and shape.Fiona has won numerous accolades for her work including people’s choice awards and overall section winners at key New Zealand art and ceramic exhibitions. Her work is available in galleries across New Zealand.

Angus WilderspinAngus Wilderspin is an artist working in photography or ink, pen, pastel and oil to create stunning contemporary artwork. Angus likes to recapture the feeling and atmosphere of the sunrise and sunset when everything is bathed in a golden light. Shapes and forms come out that could not be seen before. As the sun rises and lowers there is the drama and dance of the shadows, silhouettes appear, the crisp outlines of the landscape and highlights of light resting on the surface of objects. There is a sense of mystery; something magical taking place. It is like having a different set of eyes; the natural world is unveiling itself for those who can sit and watch.Angus’s work is held in private collections in New Zealand and overseas, including the Wallace Art Trust.
Finn WilsonFinn Wilson is based in Mt. Eden, Auckland. Art has been a huge part of his life ever since he was a kid, when he discovered it was the best way to express himself. As he’s matured, his art has evolved rapidly from doodles in school books to being featured in art exhibitions, gallery spaces and people’s homes. His work is planted firmly in the street genre and is heavily influenced by graffiti, music, cartoon-based illustration and the surf and skate cultures. He’s inspired to create work that communicates with viewers in a positive way, often with a whimsical twist.
Heather WilsonHeather Wilson is a well-established professional artist originally from Wellington but now living in sunny Hawkes Bay. Over time her work has emerged from painting Kiwiana and inanimate objects, into a visual feast of patterned colour and multi-textural layers of acrylic and mixed media on canvas. Subject matter is limitless, although there is a strong pull towards retro images and repetitive patterns.Heather is a regular exhibitor at the New Zealand Art Show in Wellington, and her work is available from galleries and design stores around New Zealand and from her studio in Taradale.
