Janine Whitelaw is a Northland based full time artist. she has been exhibiting with the NZ Artshow for over ten years. Inspired by the natural beauty of the world around her, her works often depict iconic Nz birds and fauna of Aotearoa interwoven with nature’s landscapes and floral beauty. Working in various series allows the exploration of themes and ideas , continually exploring various mixed media/compositions and subjects, while enjoying the creative journey that it takes her on. She hopes the works allow the viewers to interpret and put their own story to them and evoke nostalgic memories from within.
