Artist Statement:

Dear art enthusiasts, 
Welcome to my imaginative and vibrant world! I'm Anastasia, and I am thrilled to share with you
the essence of my artistic journey. Through this exhibition, I aim to provide you with a glimpse
into my artistic world, my experiences, inspirations, and the thoughts that fuel my creative
Inspired by the timeless allure of Impressionism, I have always been enchanted by the magical
brushwork and the play of light that artists like Claude Monet and Henri Matisse masterfully
captured. Their ability to evoke emotions and transport viewers to different realms is something
I have always admired and sought to emulate. 
Alphonse Mucha's elegance and his ability to merge art and design, and Paul Gauguin's
enchanting Tahitian works, which are a vivid blend of exoticism and vibrant color, have left a
profound mark on my creative spirit. Their journeys and unique styles have served as a
wellspring of inspiration for my own artistry.
But my art is not merely a reflection of the past. I infuse it with the dynamic energy of Pop Art, a
movement that resonates with my desire to bring a playful sense of humor and a touch of
lighthearted charm to my creations. Through a joyful fusion of styles, my works come to life in a
dance of vibrant colors and whimsical narratives. I strive to captivate your senses and take you
on a journey where laughter and artistic brilliance intertwine. 
Why did I embark on this project? The answer is simple: to share my vision of a world where art
is a source of joy and inspiration. In a world that often feels heavy with seriousness, I want to
offer a respite, a space where the imagination runs wild and the heart finds solace. With my
artworks, I aim to spark the childlike wonder that resides within each of us and celebrate the
beauty that surrounds us, even in the everyday. 
So, I invite you to step into my enchanting realm, immerse yourself in the playful world of
Impressionism and Pop Art, and let your spirit be lifted by the vibrant colors and whimsical
narratives that define my unique artistic expression. I hope you leave this exhibition with a smile
on your face and a heart brimming with inspiration. 
Thank you for joining me on this captivating journey, and I hope you find as much joy in
experiencing my art as I do in creating it.
Warm regards,

Illumination - Muhammed and Sameera Waqas

Sunday 11 June 2023 - Tuesday 5 September 2023


Islamic art exhibition by Sameera and Waqas

11th July - 5th September

Now on display at B:Hive Smales Farm

Muhammad Waqas and his wife Sameera Waqas are the founders of MW Calligraphy Art. They are Auckland based Islamic art artists. They both collaborate to create Arabic calligraphy art in a unique way. Their painting 51-Love, Peace & Unity received a lot of appreciation throughout New Zealand as it was displayed at the Beehive, Wellington Museum, and Police Museum.

Waqas and Sameera aim to show the unique beauty of Islamic Art by combining local art styles and Arabic calligraphy. They hope their paintings illuminate hearts with love of acceptance and bring a unique experience of this ancient art form to the people of Aotearoa New Zealand. They work on traditional and modern calligraphy but with a bold and modern twist that makes the letters transform into swift figures with effortless movement that dance on paper and canvas. The emotion evoked through the simple movement of lines, the balance of composition, and the contrast between vivid colors and background, all contribute to the beautiful wholeness of their work.

Roberta Queiroga Satellite Exhibition

Lake House Arts is pleased to present the latest satellite exhibition from Roberta Queiroga.
Thursday 15th December - Thursday 26th January

Spencer on Byron Hotel,

9 - 17 Byron Ave, Takapuna


Roberta Queiroga is a Brazilian-New Zealander contemporary visual artist living in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. She has also lived in Portugal and Japan and influences of those places and cultures are highly noticeable on her identity and ultimately in her work. 

"I believe my identity is continuously evolving and reshaping by experiences and influences from cultures, people and places I come across." 

[Inserting image...] Throughout her practice she incorporates and mixes elements of various techniques with a twist, such as reinterpreting shodo brush strokes with hands full of paint directly onto the canvas. A symbiosis that allows for her emotion to spontaneously flow with minimum interference when creating. Her work is bold, explores the relation of negative and positive spaces and is aligned with abstract expressionism. Roberta's background is in architecture and she has an interest in the relationship between the artwork, the space and the viewer. 

All artworks are for sale. For sale enquiries, please email

On now at Spencer on Byron Hotel

Auckland En Plein Air Artists - Russell Hollings, Merv Appleton and Jud Moresby

October 25th - December 6th


The Auckland Plein Air group of artists was originally set up by Russell Hollings and a few of his artist friends. The group is made up of both professional and student artists, meeting up once a month to paint at various locations around the Auckland area. The term plein air is a French term, which simply means “in the open air”, and was first used by the French impressionist movement, who preferred to paint in the open air to capture the true light, colour and atmosphere, something that is not achievable from photographs in a studio. This movement has now taken off around the world, and is recognised as one of the fastest growing movements in the art world.

A fascinating look inside the interiors of instruments, Brooks uses a tilt-shift effect and specialised probe lenses to capture the hidden worlds inside of instruments.

A cellist since childhood, Brooks spent two decades performing around the world with orchestras. This experience sparked curiosity about the inner workings of the instruments surrounding him. The photographic process ignites a new appreciation of the craftsmanship which goes into the creation of Steinway pianos, flutes, saxophones and didgeridoos.

Clare Woods - Satellite Exhibition

Clare Woods - Satellite Exhibition at B:Hive Smales Farm
13th April - 25th May
Spencer on Byron

Clare Woods is an intuitive abstract artist based in Matakana and in Torbay, Auckland, New Zealand. She has always painted and has vivid memories of bright colours and patterns spilling over walls from painting windows as a child. It is that freedom to be creative that lead to a successful career in design.

Having studied various art forms, Clare majored in graphic design. After working as an art director for several leading advertising agencies, in 1999 Clare started her own design company and began specialising in educational book design.

Clare has explored many mediums including clay, printing and fibre art. She now predominantly paints in acrylics on canvas and often incorporates mediums such as pencil, crayon or pastel in her mark making.

Clare also enjoys collage and is exploring this further. She uses techniques such as complex layering and mark making to tell an underlining story with thick and experimental tool paint application. Similar marks and shapes, such as the arch, repeat in her work and compose a unique signature style.

A fingerprint of pools, lines, paths and pattern. Nature is often a source of inspiration, as in her Panorama series. Clares work is joyful and colourful and vibrant.

21st May - 4th June

B:Hive Smales Farm

"In recent years I have become more focused on my artist practice. A good friend tells me that ‘I always have been an artist, my years of looking, sensing and travelling have given me a sensitivity and aesthetic that is very rewarding’.

As an interior designer, I have always used colour in my work, add to that structure, space, texture, and form, and you’ll discover the eclectic outcomes of my projects.

Besides design I have also enjoyed creating artwork similarly varied, I find myself going off on tangents at any moment, a lot of them up blind alleys. Sometimes I make it back and can appreciate what I’ve achieved.

Working in different mediums, collage and metalwork have seen my output pour out in various themes. I’m constantly look forward to seeing what I come up with next.

One of my UPSCALE 3:1 artworks is in the Wallace Collection."

Made in the Shade: Jane Walsh

Sunday 1 November 2020 - Sunday 29 November 2020


I came across some fantastic old motel postcards on a recent US holiday, featuring images from the 1950s when tourism was thriving. I was inspired to seek out more images from that era and decided to base a series of paintings on them. The ‘50s were an exuberant time - the US thrived in its post-war recovery and the outlook was positive. For the first time ever in the ‘50s, paint colours were available in any possible hue and the desire with modern colour schemes was to create a marked contrast between colours. Modern colours were clean and bright – electric blue, orange, bright yellow. Popular pastel colours were pink, turquoise, mint green, pale yellow and blue. I’ve chosen a palette that reflects this. ‘Made in the shade’ is an expression from the ‘50s, meaning being in an ideal situation – just kicking back in that lawn chair by the pool with not a care in the world...  

Jane Walsh is originally from Wellington but has called Auckland’s North Shore home for the last 30 years. She can be found on Takapuna beach every morning walking her badly-behaved golden retriever. She is a former commercial lawyer who these days prefers exploring her creative side. She paints predominantly with acrylics and enjoys combining abstract painting with more figurative work. 

Urban Tapa: Sefton Rani

Thursday 1 October 2020 - Friday 30 October 2020


Sefton Rani has always been drawn to the stimulus of wabi sabi, the Japanese aesthetic described as the “beauty that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete”. During his travels this influence has presented itself in many forms from antique Thangka paintings in Buddhist monasteries, to urban graffiti or the decayed walls of old buildings. This sensibility is integrated with his Polynesian heritage to create work which he calls “urban tapa”. The concept is taking the traditional form of tapa and reenergising it with modern materials, methods and motifs that reflect the contemporary environment we live in.

While working in a paint factory, Sefton had the opportunity to experience paint not as a decorative element loaded with pigment and squeezed from a tube but as a consumer product mixed in tanks that held up to 10,000 litres with materials loaded from 25kg sacks. Paint became an object. Looking at that factory with the build-up of years of spilt paint and other industrial detritus, an imprint was forged that influences Sefton’s work today.

Sefton’s work is primarily created with the use of paint skins. Paint is typically applied on glass or plastic and when dry, peeled off and collaged to form layers that represent time and the history of the object or surface. Occasionally the paint skins are cast on existing objects. When the skins are removed they hold a negative image of the item they were created on. The paint skins are usually tempered with combustion and since the paint is applied dry, chisels, blades, saws and other improvised implements are used to structure the paint instead of using a brush or roller. The result is organic, thick, multi layered impasto works that look as if they have been cut out of one location and implanted onto the wall in front of you. These pieces often utilise text, natural pigments and found objects. The found objects allow a layer of their own narrative and open up new dialogues with the pieces they now find themselves located in.

Born in Auckland, Sefton lives and works in Piha and has been working as a full time artist for the last 6 years. The work presented represents the multiple forms and ideas being mined simultaneously in his studio.

He wāhi Ātaahua a Aotearoa - New Zealand is Beautiful : Ramari Tauroa-Tibble

Friday 4 September 2020 - Friday 25 September 2020


He wāhi Ātaahua a Aotearoa - New Zealand is beautiful. The basis of Ramari's exhibition is inspired by seascapes from around the Rodney area. A selection of the paintings are also inspired by self-realised visions and self-designed artwork using the koru and other Maori symbols; these are inspired by love but also our need as humans to start looking after our families, planet and all other living creatures.  

Warkworth based Ramari Tauroa-Tibble’s creative work started later in life with designing and making her own concrete garden sculptures. After a 10-year break, to look after her parents full-time she found the urge to be creative calling her to do more and turned to painting in acrylics and oils when she could. Ramari is a self-taught artist. As she has had no formal training a lot of her previous paintings have been gifted to family and friends who live both here and in Australia. Ramari has often used the koru and other Maori symbols to design her own artwork. Her passion stems from the beauty she sees around her; landscapes, sea and beach scenes where colour can change dramatically from her subtle pastels to the bold fiery colours. Ramari started painting full-time in January 2019 when her passion turned into an obsession. Life experiences whether joy or sadness are incorporated in every painting. “My medium of choice is oil, which I use over acrylic, I enjoy seeing a painting start in acrylics and then come to life in oils.”  

Tarja Pudas-Jounila Solo Exhibition

Wednesday 18 March 2020 - Friday 17 July 2020

Head over to Spencer on Byron Hotel in Takapuna to see Tarja's pieces in the lobby

Tarja is a Finnish painter, who lives in Forrest Hill, Auckland. Painting was at first a hobby which she found four years ago through a strong internal fire and life-long interest in arts. As Tarja moved to New Zealand two and a half years ago, she finally had time to experiment with colours and structures - to see what she could do with brush, paints and piece of canvas.

Tarja paints mainly with acrylics and experiments willingly with different kinds of mark-making techniques. Her paintings are abstract, very colourful and intuitive. “I don’t make any pre-sketching or plans how to proceed - I want to paint freely like a child. The starting point may be a colour combination or a current emotional state. So, the outcome is always a happy surprise for me.”

Tarja has had a few solo exhibitions in Auckland 2018-2019. One of her paintings was among the finalists in Hibiscus and Bays Art Awards 2019. In addition, she won the runner-up price in Lake House Arts Centre’s competition for the members 2018. Tarja is particularly proud of the fact that one of her diptychs is part of Wallace Art Foundation’s collection.
