Paula Petherick 



Paula is a fine art photographer who uses multiple layers of texture and still life composition to create works with a painterly quality. By photographing and layering the different elements of the image individually, the finished work combines varying viewpoints and lighting elements. Having travelled widely, Paula developed her photographic style during her years overseas. She and is greatly inspired by the works of the Dutch Masters and the early European Masters, with their use of light and drama.

“Photography has always my passion. Framing objects within a lens is very much like placing flowers in a vase – it isolates them from their surroundings, transforming them into colour, form and texture. It is obsessive. Now I use photography three dimensionally as I layer and collate imagery, this has opened up a window into a whole new world of creativity.”

Paula exhibits her work in Art Shows across New Zealand and most recently has opened her own gallery in the small town of Waihi.
