The fantail or pīwakawaka topped a national poll as Bird of the Year in 2006. The birds appear tame and friendly – they follow people, snatching sandflies and other insects disturbed by human activity. They have also been great favourites with Māori, playing a prominent role in many legends. The fantail’s tail contributes to its distinctive flight – twisting and turning in the air as it catches insects in flight. Its call is like a kissing sound.

I have taken 6 of my original native bird collages, created digital versions and printed them onto plywood.

These prints of native NZ birds are printed with solvent free UV curable non-fading Osé ink onto 9mm 5-ply made from sustainable A-grade pine grown in NZ. This is cut to size (230x230mm) and hand sanded to a smooth finish. They are produced in small print runs and are all unique in wood grain. Artist's signature and print edition number is hand written on the back.

Enjoy as a one-off piece or combine with other prints to make a colorful, fun and natural statement on any wall.
