Auckland based painter and graphic designer Alice Berry has released new work for her 'Uncut Gems' series, an ongoing collection of paintings which reference the beauty of the imperfect, each painting is inspired by it's own gem. We recently visited Alice in her home studio in Mount Eden to learn a bit more about her and to watch her work.

'Aubrey Tui' is a limited edition art print by Auckland based artist Margaret Petchell. Originally a large scale painting 'Aubrey' is painted in Margaret's signature animal portrait style with intricate details, vibrant colours and a stark white background. 

Birds are a favourite subject for Margaret to paint, as she is she is captivated by their intense expressive eyes.

This monochromatic room styled by the Places and Graces team was a part of a challenge to style a series of rooms using the same blue wall.  The tones of blue and pop of natural wood gives the room a 60's era feel.

Growing up in Orewa on the Hibiscus Coast and spending much of her childhood on the family farm in Gisborne, Olivia Bezett was surrounded by nature, animals and art. The talented young artists colour pencil illustrations feature, striking native birds, fluffy bunny rabbits and cheeky woodland critters. Olivia's intricately detailed work reflect her love for animals and amazing skill can be credited to her dedication to drawing everyday and having a supportive artistic family.

'Hukanui', by Hawkes based artist Rakai Karaitiana, is a part of a series of hand-coloured photographs from his 2017 exhibition 'Rest Area' that was held at endemicworld.

'Rest Area' is a collection of images that are intended to be stopping, resting places for the viewer. A body of images that are immersive, calming and unplugged from our daily reality, each image a place to rest and reflect on what we have and our connection to nature and the land and locations we sometimes take for granted.
