Deeply inspired by the sea and New Zealand's lush, native bush...
Favouring an impressionistic style, which invokes familiarity, yet intentionally distorting the geography, produces imaginative and unique compositions.
Working from photographs, I relish painting seascapes and landscapes, with acrylic on canvas.
My inspiration is sparked by the sea and New Zealand’s unparalleled native bush, painting more from an instinctual ‘feeling’ of a particular place and time.
Heléne Henare, acclaimed New Zealand artist
Since discovering my passion for painting in 2010, I have enjoyed wonderful success.
My paintings have sold nationally and internationally, along with many requests for commission pieces.
Some artwork has been reproduced into beautiful prints, glass-like ceramic tiles, greeting cards and tote bags.
