Flotsam, jetsam, and inspiration – a Wellington artist’s lockdown lifesaver

Wellington artist Rebecca A’court, of Little1Step, tells us “Success seemed to begin early for me at the tender age of five, when I won first prize at my school art show. Sadly ‘Cat Surrounded by Blotches’ was a high never to be repeated. But it marked the beginning to a lifelong enthusiasm for creating.” Now a mum to two kids, Rebecca keeps the creative flame burning with the help of the invention of school and locked doors. Currently she enjoys creating delightful and quirky paintings and enchanting miniature seaside scenes.

Little bird in the big city

Situated as we are in the new Felt headquarters, we have a lovely view of the Avon river winding its way through Christchurch’s central business district. It was a lovely surprise this morning to spot a kingfisher keeping mindful watch over the water from a sunny spot in a nearby tree, and it inspired a spirited discussion in the office.
