Sharyn Young's recent body of work is about the transition; from the North Island to the South Island, from city bustle of a man made environment to the West Coast where nature resides; from Graphic Design to Painting; from unattached to being in a relationship; from having a mother to losing a mother. Sharyn Young trained at Brisbane College of Art and works as a Graphic Designer.

"Symbolic. Metaphors and omens, spirits and guides, relationships and dreams, these works are a portal into my past and future. They are ways for me to search for clues and answers. They are my conscious voice fused with my unconscious. I've often thought my life is like being on the water, whether being on a ship, lying on a raft, swept by a current. Currently its on a cargo vessel."

Being Here

Kerry Scott is a Wellington based artist, originally from England. She was trained in Graphic Design in England from 1982 to 1986 and worked in this field for a few years until deciding to travel and follow her own creative instincts. She draws inspiration from the impact of her experiences in India, South East Asia, the vast biodiversity found on the Great Barrier Reef, Wet Tropical Rainforest of North Queensland, and the geometry of nature with it's reflection in 'universal artistry'. This work, entitled 'Being Here', has been inspired by Kerry's decision to migrate to New Zealand and what she has 'felt' in just over two years of being here. The spiral, which has been greatly celebrated here in Aotearoa, has been a reassuring constant, in her travels, her work, and its appearance in nature and other cultures. Each spiral represents her creation or 'discreation' of an identity or belief - a stripping away of 'self' until something simple yet profound is uncovered.


Anne Marie Verbeek is a Wellington based artist whose selected works are about experimentation, variety and fun. Recently she has been experimenting with a process which produces a final result Anne Marie calls "Scratchies". This process includes oil pastel on card, covered in Indian ink, then scratched into to make lines and images. "Perhaps this is a solution for problem gamblers on an artistic bent; scratch until you find the image you've dreamed of."

Another adventure of Anne Marie Verbeek is Dishy Work. "I discovered there are a lot of very affordable wooden receptacles just waiting to be transformed into dishy art works, some with canvas stretched over. It's been fun exploring and developing these and other ideas and mediums, I trust you will enjoy them too."
