Tania Sullivan studied art and design in London in the 1980s, she rediscovered her passion for painting during the 2021 lockdowns.
Her work explores the contrasts between abstract and realism, fusing at both spectrums. Using oils, she loves the depth and fluidity of the medium.
She is inspired by the natrual beauty of New Zealand, how the light plays among our diverse landscapes from serene mountains to rugged coastlines, in particular the light in our ever changing, vast skies.
Her paintings convey an evocative glimpse of quintessential Aoteaoroa, dramatic, atmospheric and constantly moving.
She has enjoyed a wide variety of arts and crafts over the years, for ever trying and sharing new things.
She loves the opportunity to create, recreate and keep evolving her imagination and craft skills.

Alison lived at Himatangi Beach for a number of years.
The inspiration for her art comes from the environments she has lived in or visited. She has a connection with the coast and rivers that comes out in her work. She also loves her gardens and bird life.
Brenda has been passionate about being creative since her Nana taught her to knit at a young age. She dabbled in different mediums over the years – basket weaving, clay, weaving, wool.
She finds that she’s drawn to natural things, colour, the garden and the nature around her for inspiration.
Sue has been doing crafts for many years, starting with lead lighting. She loves the lead but also do copper foil projects.
Lots of craft materials can be picked up along the beach.
She now works with wood, ceramics, rocks, mosaics, macramé, mostly selling these on Market place or Facebook. Always open for orders.

Music – an Electromechanical synthesis of human and machine sound.
Gwen spent the first 40 years of her life in the Northeast of Scotland, and the last 25 years in her adopted home of New Zealand, arriving in Himitangi Beach in November 2022. She has been fortunate to travel through many countries, experienced many sights and had many adventures. From the Northern Hemisphere, Northeast Coast to the West Coast. From the North Sea to the Tasman Sea. These are seen through her lens, her eyes, her imagination of time and travel.
