Foto2Art – turn your picture into a work of art
328 Williams Street
Kaiapoi, New Zealand

Creating A3 super size watercolour prints of your car, pet or person.

Using your original photo or digital media, turn your picture into a work of art. These pictures are printed on watercolour paper and look like real paintings. Using the latest computer techniques a scanned photo can be turned into a painting that can stand up to close scrutiny from professional painters. You choose the style of background or none at all if you wish. Printing is done on heavy weight watercolour paper. I use twenty year fade resistant colour fast inks that will not fade like a laser print. I generally recommend using a plain picture frame, but I have different styles and colours available. This is a cost effective way of getting a painting, without spending $300 – $400

Canterbury area prints I can take photos myself if needed.

Your 483mm x 329mm super sized A3 print is just $40 and standard framing is just $20. So for as little as $60, you can have a unique picture.

Carol Moffatt

Carol Moffatt is a New Zealander living in Kaiapoi, North Canterbury, New Zealand.  She has painted in the water colour medium for several years.

In the last 7 years she has attended the Mitchell School of the Arts Summer and Winter Schools at Charles Sturt University, Australia. Through these workshops she has concentrated on technique, inspired by Alvaro Castegnet, Joseph Zbukvic, Herman Pekel and Amanda Hyatt .

In 2013 Carol had her first solo exhibition at the Culverden Art Gallery in North Canterbury.  Private buyers have also showed interest and purchased her water colours as well.

Most of Carol’s paintings and inspiration comes from the Canterbury landscapes. This includes flowers which emerge from the earthquaked landscape.  Her studio is situated at her home and she welcomes visitors by appointment.
The world around me is where I draw my ideas and inspiration from.  Trees, mountains and water together with plants and flowers that live in the environment create my water colour world.  The Canterbury environment is blessed with all these attributes and I feel privileged to live and paint in it.”

Ruby Whitty – Unicorn Art Studio

Art has always been a passion of mine. As a child I loved to draw and paint – it was an escape.
As life went on: marriage, having twins and emigrating to New Zealand from the UK took over and there was little time for pencils and brushes.
It is now that I have time to begin my journey……..
I started with Folk Art, I loved the specialized brushes and clean lines and shading required. I then tried applying these disciplines to canvas and board using a variety of mediums. Favouring Acrylics.
As I have not had any formal training, I try to imagine the finished painting then work out how to do it.
I gain inspiration from many sources: nature, glass, fruit, flowers, landscapes, buildings and historical landmarks to name a few. But I am always willing to try something new – go in a different direction.
I have recently produced a collection of unusual abstract works called ‘Industrial Chaos’ inspired from childhood memories of my brother’s profession as a tool maker.
This has led me to even more abstract works, which I am enjoying very much but I still love to paint landscapes and still life.
I am actively involved with the Rangiora Art Society and am President of the Kaiapoi Creative Arts section of the KWMC.
Local exhibitions are the main avenue where I present my work. These are wonderful opportunities to network with other creative people in my community. Of which there are many.
I am available for commission work.
I feel incredibly blessed that I am able to express myself by way of a brush. The journey so far has taught me a lot about myself and everyday I look forward to what it brings creatively.
