3. Amy Wybrow

Our pick: Palm

Lush, tropical plant life photographed in a naturally lit historic glasshouse.

    4. Holly roach

    Our pick:Manuka

    Lovely bursts of colour and careful layering make this print a charming tribute to the native New Zealand Manuka flower. It can be found in many different habitats and Holly spotted it in her garden.

    Holly Roach is a Canadian artist and illustrator now living in Auckland. Her artworks are influenced by simple forms, patterns and colours often found in surface designs of the 50s & 60s – and of course her obvious love of flowers. Holly's creative process often involves the playful use of vibrant, bold colour and geometric shapes, bringing a modern twist to a nostalgic aesthetic.


      5. Simon Stockley

      Our pick: Hydrangea Valley

      Hydrangea Valley is an exaggerated memory created by Simon Stockley from his childhood in the 1960's when houses were romantically stylised and the garden were laden with exotic flowers and plants. Simon does not use AI in his artwork, instead he uses old 3D modelling and rendering applications.


      Simon Stockley has been producing art for well over 50 years He attended Elam School of Fine Arts in  1979 where he was lectured by Robert Ellis, Dick Frizzell and Don Binney. Throughout the 80’s Simon became a muralist and a freelance illustrator creating a lot of editorial illustrations for publications like Pacific Way, NZ Business and Metro. His most prominent mural is the Southern Right Whales mural on Dominion Road, Auckland which has become somewhat iconic lasting nearly 40 years. From the early 90’s Simon began using Photoshop to create his illustrations and from the mid 90s moved on to 3D applications. For the last 25 years Simon has focused on computer generated images, using them for  dance party posters and source material for paintings. More recently has produced finished works in digital medium for printmaking.

        6. Sophia Jenny

        Our pick: Phantasmagoria 03 Dahlia

        This surrealist series of the artist’s legs married with a series of flowers is fun, cheeky, and strangely compelling to look at. Titled “Phantasmagoria,” this sequence has been devised to be dream-like and convey a sense of being “out-of-this-world.”

        Sophia Jenny is a visual and photographic artist based on Auckland’s North Shore. Her academic training was at Unitec, but her work is largely informed by lived experience (and practice). She has recently started creating cyanotypes, a slow-reacting process of photographic printing using sunlight, and is currently accepting commissions. “I love the sun, and I’m fascinated by the unique qualities and possibilities of cyanotype. It’s the perfect medium for combining my skills as a photographer with my passion for fine art.”

                10. Abbey Merson

                Our pick: Ruby

                In this painting, a figure stands as the central focus, holding a bouquet of vibrant red hydrangeas in front of their face. The flowers, full and luxurious, create a striking contrast against the light blue background.

                Painting from her studio in Hastings, New Zealand, Abbey’s art encapsulates her love of florals, landscapes and vibrant colours. Having painted daily for the last five years, Abbey’s studio is best described as an explosion in a paint factory. With blooms plonked in jars, art supplies scattered over tables and shelves stacked with sparkly treasures, as paintings of all stages cover every inch of wall space.

                For Abbey, painting is a form of escapism, allowing her to make sense of the world and to re visit memorable moments of her childhood. Although Abbey’s work continues to evolve as she explores the never ending world of colour, her art almost always begins with a foraged flower or a treasure gifted to her by a friend, before intuitively taking on a life of its own.
