Nga taonga o te ngahere, treasures of the forest… New etchings and new paths by printmaker Kirsty White.
Working as a printmaker from my Lyall Bay studio, I have travelled the Wellington coastline and beyond with my sketchbooks, not only drawing, but researching the history. From archaeological diggings to favoured fishing bays and associated kai of individual areas, I have tried to learn as much as I can. This process of understanding history before making art has set me up for developing my unique style, which is also heavily influenced by our position here in the Pacific.
