My name is Paris I am 14 years old, and I go to Kaiapoi high school. I play netball, tennis and do karate. Once I finish school I am going to study to become a Pediatric nurse, I have wanted to do this since the age of 10.
I had the idea from my mum (Shelley) to make little Christmas trees, so I decided to follow mums’ idea.
Half of the money I make goes towards my study. I can make just about any colour for you and they are all lit up with white or coloured lights (your choice) I sell them at markets and made to order.
They are all $25

Christine is currently living, working and creating in Kaiapoi. She comes from a teaching background, but is presently commissioned in a marketing capacity when she is not creating artworks. Her artistic passions lie within the realms of abstract expressionism and photography. Christine’s preference is to convey more of what she feels than she sees, making her work rather spontaneous, largely unplanned, and a welcome relief from considered responses expected in daily living. While Christine enjoys most styles of painting it is abstract art where she derives most satisfaction from, usually beginning with a random under-painting allowing the finished mixed media piece to evolve. This process may take a while and she usually has many works on the go at one time, waiting for the next layer of each piece to reveal itself. There is a sense of joy in Christine’s work that comes from an unplanned journey, as the finished artwork slowly evolves, with layer at a time revealing itself through to completion.
Christine is represented by Art Box, Papanui and McAtamney Gallery, Geraldine.
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.”

Our floral and craft studio is a New Zealand, family owned business, situated in Tuahiwi, 20 minutes from Christchurch airport.
We provide a daily floral service, creating designs with fresh flowers and foliage. With more than 30 years floristry experience working in city shops, I decided it was time for a change. We opened our studio on our rural property just over 3 years ago.
With a particular focus on Maori crafts made in New Zealand, we have on display good examples of local artist’s work including, carvings, harakeke weaving, paintings, jewellery, feltwork and handmade cards.
