Hollie Smith: Watching, Learning(oils on paper)

“As every child does…they watch and learn. With this I just wanted to catch the innocence in the way children observe things, whether it be in a positive way or not.”

Mara TK: Moriori Paperweight

“The piece is called Moriori paperweight, and it’s carved out of greywacke. It’s really just a study on how to manipulate sandstone, a good stone to start with for the budding stone carver as it’s quite soft. Unfortunately you can’t ‘undo’ any mistakes in carving. This is my first go at carving stone."

Riki Gooch

“I took this out on Kapiti Island with an old Holga camera, which is a Russian camera that has a plastic lens. It was while I was writing. Paradise!”
