Huia Ann Wills

Painting Mixed Media Oil, Acrylic, Pastel Watercolour

Huia's art is an assortment of creative ideas, depending on her mood at the time.  She loves trying and experimenting with new ideas,  recycled materials and giving new life whether upcycling an outfit or creating for a local wearable arts show, or just crafting whimsical fantacy.

I love textures and colours creating a mix medium on canvas playing with moods,lights and experiences.

As an Impressionist artist l love to capture the innocence and mood of what l see and feel from city views to sunset, skylines,seascapes,landscapes and personalities of subjects, moving through each of my pieces never really knowing what I am going to capture, allowing it to unfold and reveal itself. Working in Watercolour, Acrylic, Pastels ,paper mache, is a delight to me.

My craft art allows me to bring new life to the old and experience pretty textures.

Some of my work can be seen at The Little Black Gallery where I'll be exhibiting during KOAST.

Painting Watercolour

Watercolours, acrylics, charcoal & pencil

Art has always been part of my life. I have always sketched in pencil and charcoal. Since living in Kerikeri, I have studied watercolours with Maxine Bell, loving the free flowing colours and gestural, expressive brush strokes that watercolours entail.

My style is realism whether I am painting in watercolour or using pencil or charcoal. I enjoy the challenges of a variety of subjects: still life, our local fruits, seascapes, horses, the human figure and scenes of life. Recently I have been experimenting with acrylics and mixed media, a new stage, but still in my style of realism.

My working art studio is Valencia Art on Valencia Lane in Kerikeri.  Call me for an appointment anytime
