Veronique Desmot

Based at Earthskin Muriwai, Véronique Desmet’s preferred genre is video performance and print.

Her passion is for the movement of the body, rhythm and light and how these both relate to and create our environment. Her art attempts to trap and project evanescence.


Emma Farry

Words have always answered questions for Emma. She has a deep curiosity about life and people. She looks to nature, and to stones in particular as a repository for timeless messages that last much longer than a human lifetime. In many ways, this is her response to the impermanence and fragility of life.


Joss Hong

Joss’s asian heritage forms a strong foundation for her handcrafted contemporary jewellery designs and pieces. Living at Muriwai Beach, Joss is constantly inspired by the ever changing environment and her connection with its’ energy and the community.


Amanda Kemp

Amanda’s work is anchored in neuropsychology, in particular the scientific and unexplained qualities of consciousness. In her ceramic work she looks at the unexplained, showing a strong connection with nature in relation to consciousness and her culture. Amanda is of Rongowhakaata decent.
