  • Artist Bio
  • The white heron or kotuku is well-loved by the New Zealand people, but it is rarely seen except by those who specifically seek it out. Its sole New Zealand breeding site near Okarito Lagoon in Westland is well-known and well-protected, but elsewhere it is 'He kotuku rerenga tahi' or the bird of single flight, implying something seen perhaps once in a lifetime. When seen in close proximity it is a magnificent bird, with its large size and clean white plumage.

  • 'I was created in Napier, New Zealand. A big thank you to my Mother.

    When i was fullsized, i captured my Bachelor of Design Degree at Massey University in Wellington.  Starting out in textiles, I moved through the arty realms of graphic design,

    screenprinting, video, and painting, to end up majoring in Illustration.

    My first solo exhibition  ‘The Jellyfish Crossroads’ opened in March 2010 , and since then i have been painting and exhibiting around New Zealand. Also working on developing my style, my knowledge of nature and evolution, researching strange animals, battling with my printer/scanner, and looking for commissions.'-Rachel Walker
