Northern artistry - Artist Theresa Reihana

Far North based Theresa Reihana combines Maori artistry and motherhood, culminating in recent exhibitions in Melbourne and Italy after only a five year history of painting. All her work is completed using Resene paints, predominantly Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic that she purchases in 1 litre pack sizes before transferring it to testpots for convenience of use while painting.

Artist Theresa Reihana

Artistry skills are shared with a selection of the Far North Kura Kaupapa and mainstream schools, and taught over a series of 1-2 day seminars. With an extensive portfolio of work including portraits, mural work and work with the new Whare Whakairo (fully carved marae) in Peria in which she guided the iwi through the interior and exterior painting and decoration including the kowhaiwhai panels, Theresa's artistry is enviably versatile, adorning a wide range of mediums. Her latest work includes a series of greeting cards that are reproduced as part of her 2004 calendar.

Artwork to be enjoyed by all without breaking one's budget.

Artist: Theresa Reihana
