My First Opening

Shivaun’s Studio and Gallery 1st Opening

We had a beautiful day for the very first exhibition opening at Shivaun’s Studio and Gallery.
On display was my Amur Leopard sculpture and my fellow artists artwork of drawings and paintings; Paul Nicholson, Bridgette Williams and Julia Clapham.
Madison Hogan and Derrick Auyoung sang for us and Cheryl Johansen read a moving poem.
It was a lovely day and I will be having more events and exhibitions in the future.

Shivaun’s Artist Statement I live and work in Lower Hutt. My artwork has a strong Art Deco style. (Early 20th century.) I was drawn to this aesthetic before I even knew it had a name. The clean cut lines, curves and symnetry brings a sense of intrigue to my eye. The inspiration for my work comes from what I see around me. I currently work with Oamaru Stone. The medium lends itself to straight lines and curves. I love the problem solving aspect of reductive sculpting. It keeps me guessing to the end what the final sculpture will look like. I feel the stone and I create the piece together. I have work in Private and public collections inluding The Wallace Arts Trust. I have a degree in graphic design and illustration, Bdes.
