Yulia Potts  lives in Christchurch. She is a mother of two beautiful daughters and Pippi the basset hound.  As a little girl she loved making houses for fairies out of flowers in her Nana’s garden. Now, she creates imaginary worlds through her artwork helping the fairies “come to life” for children. Most of her work is done in the “old fashioned” way with watercolours and pencils. The beautiful nature of New Zealand is the great source of inspiration.


ann-mckay-SpringAnna McKay is a feminist artist living in Christchurch. Her digital creations focus on the exploration of women and gender, using colour, composition and emotion to express ideas. Anna can do both realistic interpretations of people, adding symbolism and iconography to express ideas, as well as creating more abstract pieces that focus on representing an emotion or energy. Her work is vibrant as well as being stark at times; it has high impact and easily stands out from the crowd
