Finding Our Way 

Sunday 11th August - Friday 6th September

Ogle Gallery

Opening celebration:

4pm Sunday 11th August
A group show exploring expressions of wellbeing 
The exhibition is a testament to the impact of creative expression on mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. 
Emerging artists Burnetta Van Stipriaan, Helen Harvey, and Ana Ferrari met through Wayfind Creative mentoring 
sessions. Although their art practices and backgrounds are diverse, they discovered a shared well-being 
narrative through creativity. They have found solace, catharsis, and fulfilment within their painting and 
printmaking practices. 
About the Artists: 
Burnetta Van Stipriaan is a self-taught, emerging artist whose works are informed by place and identity. Burnetta 
adapts the Samoan concept of va (the space in between) to invite reconnection. Her work delves into questions 
of self, belonging, and the environment. She donates 5% to the Ovarian Cancer Foundation New Zealand. 
Helen Harvey (Pākehā, Māori) is an abstract painter and mixed media artist. Her work is cultural and political, 
inspired by a sense of kaitiakitanga, and observing the interaction of humanity and the natural world.
Ana Ferrari - Ana’s search for peace evolved into a meaningful exploration of the power of creative expression 
and well-being. Ana is also an entrepreneur (Luna, Art+ Play) and a practitioner of The Three Principles Of Innate 
Mental Health. Ana’s more recent work was produced at Toi Ora Living Trust studio and 5% of the proceeds will 
be donated back to it.
