Mark Larsen
Business Name: Mark Larsen
Long Business Description:

Multi-media art for Mark is a balance between creative instinct and technical skill.  Mark works with a variety of opposing, yet complimentary mediums providing a balance of harmonious achievement and creative accomplishment.

Where Mark's paintings portray meticulous realism, his sculptures take on a more fluid and contemporary form. Successful execution offers a strong sense of personal fulfilment, creating lifelong pleasure for both himself and the viewer.

Mark is mostly inspired by nature's flora and fauna. He also takes stimulus from a range of artists including his 2nd great-grandfather, Samuel Horatio Moreton (1842-1921). Mark focuses attention on his interpretation of these visual stimuli and works to show an emotional connection within each of his art pieces.

Mark has achieved a number of awards for both his public and private art commissions, as well as within the sign-writing industry.  Mark sells his artworks locally, nationally and internationally.

Carol Moffatt
Business Name: Carol Moffatt
Business Genre: ,
Long Business Description:

I paint both watercolours and oils.

Statement.

“The world around me is where I draw my ideas and inspiration from.  Trees, mountains and water together with plants and flowers that live in the environment along with music, create my spiritual world.  When I paint I want to capture the wonders that surround us and in turn ask the viewer in to use their own imagination and experiences to make sense and meaning for themselves.

The atmosphere and mystery help create paintings because of the beauty all around us.  I am continually looking for ways to push the boundaries and find the light.  Our New Zealand South Island landscapes provide an infinite source of ideas and material.

I have been so fortunate to learn from great teachers who have helped me enormously.  I take far more risks now and am constantly learning and experimenting.  Painting is a joyful and happy experience which I am privileged to share. “

Amy Hoedemakers 
Business Name: Amy Hoedemakers 
Business Genre: ,
Long Business Description:

On the northern edge of the Canterbury Plains, you will find Amy Hoedemakers and her studio. Nestled in the natural landscape that provides much of the inspiration for her abstract landscape paintings, this established artist creates atmospheric paintings that allow the viewer to enter and wander within.

Her work is familiar to aspects of the New Zealand landscape, yet not entirely obvious to specific places. Capturing the dreamy, dramatic and mystical quality, that is the New Zealand landscape. The water appears translucent as though we can see through it to what lies beneath and what’s there is left to our imagination. We are compelled to look into the deep dark pools of her paintings and are drawn in towards luminous colour. We can see where she has scraped back the paint and applied more, creating exquisite, transparent layers. She allows the paint to run and yet there is no doubt that the runs are part of the landscape. Her paintings draw us in, inviting us to linger, leaving behind our busy lives for a moment. Amy’s painting's give us a glimpse into another world, a sanctuary, a place to rest.

“My painting is always evolving,” Amy says. “I think as you grow as a person your work changes too. It’s quite reflective in that aspect.”

 She has exhibited in solo and group shows locally and internationally. Her work is held in private and public collections within New Zealand, Ireland, England and Australia. Her painting 'Waiting' was featured in 'Craigs Investment Partners Calendar, 2015' for emerging and emerged artists and more recently she was a finalist for the Zonta Ashburton Female Art Award 2018.
