An artist's residency in the Wairarapa has turned into a much longer stay for Kerri McGill, after her flight back to the US was cancelled. But paint and film set scenic artist Kerri McGill is making the most of her time at the NZ Pacific Studio. Even before the shutdown, she'd been exploring the North and South Islands, and incorporating maps into her work. She tells Lynn about the differences in the landscape between her home in urban America and here in Aotearoa.
