Nurturing creativity

Saturday, February 18th, 2017

Writer and artist Z.R. Southcombe (Zee) loves to share her passion with others – especially young creators – and we love her inspirational and educational books for youngsters who want to develop their creative ideas.

I am a Writer, a collaborative project with seven kiwi authors, encourages, motivates, and gives practical ideas for young writers to explore creative writing and cultivate their unique voice. I am an Artist, which Zee worked on with six kiwi artists, likewise provides practical ideas and encouragement for young artists to find and nurture their unique artistic identity.

Both these fantastic books are available now on Felt, along with an inspiring range of Zee’s other creative projects.

A feline character

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

Meet Nancy, inspired by the street-wise and saucy but compassionate and fiercely protective character from Charles Dickens’ Oliver.

This characterful feline, from the imagination of Canterbury artist Katrina Perano, is printed from a hand-carved Lino block onto high quality acid-free print paper, using archival blue-black ink. Take her home today!

White Heron (Kotuku)​ : Plywood Art Block by Native Creative

Native Creative has just released a lovely collection of prints on wood, featuring new designs of kereru on puriri, kotuku and huia on karaka. These art block versions are printed onto beautiful birch plywood and make a stunning modern collection hung together (there are eight designs to choose from) – or you can buy them as prints on bamboo veneer, ready to frame in a more traditional style.

We think these are a great gift idea for expat friends or family overseas – light, postable and a little piece of home!
