'At the Heart of the Whirinaki' . 2014 . watercolour on paper . 500mm x 500mm
This work was inspired by my time working with The Department of Conservation in Te Pua a Tāne
Conservation Area. In this breathtaking reserve is the 'Te Whaiti-nui-a-Toi canyon' which has spectacular green-moss banks that slip down into the clearest slow-running waters, surrounded by tall indigenous podocarp forest. The contrast of colours and the uniqueness of it's character is awe inspiring. A must-see if ever in the region, especially the H-track walk.
