I am a visionary surrealist working with oil on board for many of my works;  also I create mixed media abstracts from using found objects.

About Me

From leaving school I ventured into the world of glass design and construction, gaining the qualification of a New Zealand Flat Glass Trade Certificate.

Having an artistic mindset led me to using the product to create an extensive range of designer glass works over the span of fifteen years.

Following the experience in the glass industry I returned to full time study for five years to gain a Diploma in Architectural Design and a Bachelor Degree in Applied Arts.

Academic study has given me a passion for modern technology. Coupling this passion with an understanding of the ancient product of glass, I am investigating the potential of glass in the sculptural field. Areas of focus at present are light reflection, refraction and projection.

I also enjoy drawing, painting, graphic design and photography.

About Me

Heres my blog containing some of my recent work- http://michelledawson70.blogspot.com/

Born in Wellington, schooled on the West Coast and adopted by Southland. My blood line is Waikawa Marae in Picton (Te Atiawa) and my father was a Maori carver. I'm a painter, using mostly acrylic and mixed media, occasionally doing portraits in oil and I dabble in small scale sculpture.


In which area of visual arts are you involved?

I co-founded an art studio for people with disabilites 7 years ago called C.S. Art. We have just finished an exhibition at the Community Gallery at the Southland Museum where 25 artists exhibited (likely next exhibition same venue in 2012). I also work for Southland Education as an art tutor with the adult program on Esk St and the Kidzart program in the school holidays.

About Me

Courtney currently paints from home in Gore NZ, where she currently lives with her husband John and son Thomas. A love of God, craft, art and her surroundings has led to a developing journey of artwork ranging from the more serious exploration of portraiture, to lighter whimsical and imaginative scenes.

Currently the majority of work is completed in acrylics. While motherhood and domestic goddess life take most of her time, art is snuck in to any free minute as a portfolio and collection are established

About Me

I am currently resident in Invercargill. I moved here in March 2011 to tutor visual arts at SIT. Previous to this I was the Manager/Curator of the Ashburton Public Art Gallery (for six years). I completed  my BFA and MFA at the Otago School of Art, (Dunedin being my home town), and was involved with Gallery projects - Satellite Gallery and later Introspect Contemporary Art Space. I am really enjoying Invercargill and am happy to be back down South! The highlights of my time at SIT so far have been getting the Transition Gallery in the SIT Arcade back up and running and teaching professional practices to students across all levels - Foundation, Certificate and Degree. The tutors here in our department are also passionate about their work and  we are fortunate to be supported by the wider staff in what we do.
