A childhood in Central Otago and a lifetime of enjoyment from arts and crafts has given me a natural sense of colour, texture, light and landscape.
My passion is to use the medium of oils to create stunning paintings that will delight the hearts of lovers of this beautiful land with its rugged vistas.
I am privileged to live surrounded by what I love to paint.
Angela Doig (Whyte) was born on the West Coast of New Zealand in 1990, shifting to North Canterbury with her family in 2005 where she is now based.
She enjoys being able to express herself creatively, by means of various subject matter, mediums, colour and techniques.
She is mostly self-taught as an artist, in 2010 attaining a Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication).
Zoe has established herself as an artist and private art tutor within Canterbury. Zoe has created works for local exhibitions and galleries as well as commission pieces and has enjoyed recently creating works for solo exhibitions.
The overall theme connecting Zoe’s artwork is a love of natural, organic forms such as birds, leaves, and flowers, which appeal aesthetically for their contour, shape and design quality. These fluid forms are then offset against geometric shapes and hard lines.
Zoe is fascinated by light and its effect on colour. She uses mixed-media to create luminous layers of colour and textured patterning, giving the impression of light filtering through natural forms.
Zoe enjoys creating a sense of mystery, depth and story. Having forms coming and going, emerging out of the background then disappearing behind a solid line or block of colour.
interesting pieces and like to reuse or recycle as much of my glass as I can - almost zero waste! I accept commissions and will work with you to get the piece you want.
Clare uses colour to create a visual environment that absorbs us into them. The paintings refuse to stay still and respond to light and emit a colourful glow that expresses her impulse to convey what she sees and feels with texture, colour and form onto canvas.
Her abstracted paintings of Landscapes from an aerial perspective show common features we see in our rural land.
Clare discusses our need for water through rivers, falling rain, irrigation and water storage revealing our landscape in patterns and stripes
Raymond Herber lives and works at Iron Ridge Quarry Sculpture Park nestled in the hills overlooking North Canterbury's Waipara Valley. He was born in Christchurch in 1971, one of seven children from a European immigrant family of artists.
Steel and stainless are Raymond's medium of choice, and his work encompasses small scale intimate studies of moments suspended in time, whimsical interactive and kinetic pieces as well as large scale private and public sculpture.
