Wildlife Artist



Framed Original ‘Kikikikiki’ Artwork. 48 cm x 44 cm. 

“Kikikikiki” is a Red-crowned Kakariki. 

Kakarki means both ‘small parrot’ and ‘green’. These vibrant green NZ natives were once common throughout Aotearoa/NZ, now this red-crowded kakariki can only be found breeding in fenced predator free areas or on predator free offshore island.

These red-crowded kakariki, unlike their yellow and orange fronted cousins, spend most of their time in the lower canopy or on the ground, including breeding in holes in the ground, so are vulnerable to predation.

My artwork is created in response to the NZ wildlife, birds and critters, that surround my life and studio on Hinewai Reserve. I am inspired by natures resilience and the critters who live and breed here. I create to protect our critters one artwork at a time.

A percentage of my profits go towards helping our critters.

These original (and therefore non-replaceable) artworks are couriered with tracking via NZ Post.
