"Kotuku" is the Maori name for the white heron, a bird that is rare in New Zealand with only one breading site. Threats to these birds include predators, storms, the condition of the environment and food availability.


My paintings aim is to challenge us to think, feel, and act. The butterflies symbolise fragility, and the strong use of black and white symbolise life and death. The green leaves are a metaphor for hope and life.


The painting is professionally framed by Lewis Paape Gallery, is ready to hang and comes with a certificate of authenticity.


The artwork measures 42 x 52cm (16.53 x 20.47 inches) including the frame.


Shipping: please use the "canvas over 45cm long" option.
