These beautiful native bird artworks from Liz Abbott Art are made by hand at every step of their creation.

First Liz hand-carves woodblocks, and then she inks them up with oil-based ink, using a hand roller or brayer. The inked image is impressed with a hand-operated printing press on to textured paper, hand made from New Zealand flax (harakeke).

Finally, Liz hand colours each woodcut with watercolour – making every print a unique and original work of art.

The Grey Warbler / Riroriro (Blue) by Rea Art

You’re more likely to hear one of these shy birds than see one in the New Zealand bush – their distinctive warble is beautiful and melodic. For Māori, the sound of the Riroriro signified it was kōanga, or springtime. This gorgeous fine art print is reproduced from an original oil painting by Rea Art.
