Shed tour this Sunday

SHED BY NATURE: Mixed media artist Holly Howman Evans takes time out from her Makorori studio to hand out fliers for the She Shed tour which is on this Sunday.

MIXED media artist Holly Howman Evans's Makorori studio is part of Sunday’s five-stop She Shed itinerary.

The artist’s mixed media works include paintings in acrylics.

“I work from the subconscious. The subconscious mind is the source of a unique form of reference, because it speaks the language of feeling and symbolism,” she said.

Driftwood found on Makorori Beach provides her with materials for her sculptural works, while other organic forms shed by nature have given her fresh inspiration.

“I’ve fallen in love with those beautiful seed pods from nikau and other palms.”
