Artist Donna-Marie Patterson wants New Zealanders to really think about water, how precious it is, how under valued and how at risk.

Her family's property at Kaimata on the South Island's West Coast was once mined for gold and farmed but is now regenerating into rainforest. The accountant turned artist mines the Coast and Canterbury for ideas and materials that she channels into her sculptures and drawings.

Her latest exhibition is called  Oil and Water - and both are sourced from her property. Her exhibition has just opened at Wellington's Solander gallery
