Jill Perrot
Visit this celebrated artist in her Titirangi studio
"The coast from Whatipu to Muriwai has been an endless source of stimulation and inspiration for me in my work. So much of this coastline is evocative of the wild and untouched state that is still characteristic of many parts of New Zealand. I am continually trying to convey these elements along with the great strength and beauty of our West Coast."
