Title: Paua Tuatara
Medium: Mixed Media
Status: Original Artwork
Dimensions (cm): TBA
When creating this piece Jessie was influenced by kiwiana and New Zealand’s natural habitat and inhabitants.
Over 100 individual pieces of Paua have been carefully selected and placed to bring life and light to this work.
This piece is suitable for both inside use and for under an easement. It can also be sent overseas.
Each of Jessie’s designs is made in runs of only 5 to 10 and due to the nature of materials used each piece is unique.
About the Artist
Jessie created her first piece when she was 17 as a present for her mother, symbolically it was a Paua shell NZ map which she still has.
From this point until her early 30’s creating these pieces was more of a hobby. Over time Jessie’s artwork evolved to the point it is now where she is constantly building and creating new designs and avenues for her artwork to reach audiences who will love and appreciate her uniquely New Zealand art.
