OUR GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHT'S
Our 'Garden of Earthly Delight's' celebrates New Zealand's living birds, flora and fauna.
This Exhibition follows on from the Lost Songs series which focused on birds that have become extinct. Focusing on the birds we have today, Lianne hopes to make people more aware of their existence as well as their vulnerability.

COLOUR MY AUTUMN
In her exhibition 'Colour My Autumn', Connie shares her fasination with the changing colours and textures of Autumn in her own unique creative way. Making garments that live outside the realms of mainstream fashion, gives people the opportunity to become part of her wider narrative of being mindful in how we take care of the world around us.
She is able to highlight her ethos of Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose, Rethink, in a colourful way, where in her hands she transforms that which is second hand into something useful, beautiful and quirky.
Peruse Creative Ripple an online magazine dedicated to promoting and supporting the creative community of Aotearoa, New Zealand.
