Book celebrates Kiwi artists who are wild about nature

From Nine To Noon, 11:25 am on 11 May 2021

Artists have long found inspiration in nature - and a new book has pulled together the work of some who have also helped to protect it. 

Creative Conservation: A celebration of New Zealand artists who are wild about nature showcases the paintings, sculptures, carvings, ceramics and weavings of 35 artists from around New Zealand.

Many of those featured have worked with nature trusts or the Department of Conservation, and that awareness of the environment informs their work.

Kathryn is joined by Chrissy Wickes, who helped compile - and is featured in - the book.
