Kākā – "Kākā revival" Kākā Revival is an artwork that celebrates the growing population of the Kākā in the Wellington region. The artwork is based on a photograph taken by Hannah at Zealandia in Karori, Wellington. By the end of the 2018/19 breeding season over 1,000 Kākā have been banded by their very successful program. Size – A3 (297mm x 420mm).
Hihi – "Rays of sunlight" This artwork is a pair of curious Stitchbird (Hihi) sitting in one of their favourite trees, the Karamu. The Māori bird name Hihi also translates to ‘ray of sun’, which is a nice reflection to the beautiful, bright yellow chest of the male bird (below). The reference photographs were taken by Hannah at Zealandia. Size – A3 (297mm x 420mm).
