Kristin Ivill - '10 km East of Downtown'
A landscape I see most days. Saint Heliers has been my home for over 30 years, it's where I got married, where my children went to school, where I walk, shop and play.

Kristin is a self-taught artist, living in Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland with her husband, daughter & son. She takes her inspiration from nature. This love started in her very early years with her Grandmother teaching her about the native plants, trees and birds on the family farm in Clevedon, and continues today. Her current works are of landscapes within Aotearoa/New Zealand that she has visited and/or has connection to, using acrylic and mixed media to create her pieces in the style of Pentimento ("the presence or emergence of earlier images, forms, or strokes that have been changed and painted over").
