Ema Frost burst onto the Auckland art scene in 2010 and has been captivating her fans with her unique style ever since. Her bright colours to give life to beautiful images, the inspiration of which comes from Ema’s fascination and deep respect for the mystery and magic found in Maori and Japanese folklore. The often delicate and always delightful characters she creates are the perfect marriage of these mythical cultures. Part of the charm of her work is in the little idiosyncrasies that can be found only upon closer inspection of her images. Look carefully and you’ll see little characters peeking out from unsuspecting places and the omniscient Tiki watermark that protects all life in the world of her imagination.

Not one to stand still, Ema regularly travels extensively, finding inspiration off the beaten path. Like the characters that are hidden in her work, Ema tests the boundaries of her imagination when she loses herself in the unfamiliar land and cityscapes that are beyond our shores. The tales and trinkets she brings back from her travels are her constant reminders that there is more out there than our everyday existence. Ema also leaves a touch of Frost behind in every country she visits, her work can be found in galleries in Japan, India, Germany and across North America. This allows for Ema to collaborate with artists from around the world.
Laura Shallcrass is an artist based in Queenstown. She trained as an illustartor and graphic designer, before becoming increasingly drawn by the world of fine arts.

Laura settled in Queenstown where her love of the outdoors informs & inspires her work, which features flora, fauna & more recently gemstones and minerals hovering dreamlike against scenes both ethereal & familiar.

Laura paints in oils & goauche and draws in ink and graphite, creating sparse yet detail focused works of infinite depth and stillness. 

Bridget Hall Design

A Kiwi artist living in the small South Island town of Wanaka, New Zealand. she has a strong sense of connection to the mountains from growing up in Wanaka surrounded by the stunning Southern Alps and many years living the life of a competitive skier doing year round winters in North America, Europe and New Zealand. 

She then followed a career as a graphic designer with New Zealand Snowboarder, New Zealand Skier and New Zealand Skateboarder magazines for 10 years. She also completed a Bachelor of Arts degree at Massey University. 

In 2013 She started Bridget Hall Design –  creating art prints and greeting cards to local design stores and at art markets.  This art is inspired by the ever-changing drama and beauty of the natural world, it provokes a sense of connection and history in a modern way with much of the work focused on geometric and contemporary abstract mountain art.
