This lovely limited edition framed print features a Kete.

"I have been an artist and fine art screen printer for at least 40+ years. My more recent work is more influenced by our flora and fauna, and our cultural diversities in society and art.
I also print on fabric. My work is on archival fine art papers and I print with German Marabu inks."
“I create. It’s what I do, have always done, and always will do because it’s who I am. I paint to make sense of the world around me and my place in the middle of it all.”
Abbey is a New Zealand artist and painter whose art is deeply inspired by nature, by people, by colour, by the wonderful world we live in, and from the day to day challenges of life itself. She is continually exploring her world, through colour, creating vibrant paintings as a result.
Abbey worked as a picture framer for over 15 years, painting in her spare time, until April 2018 when she could no longer put off her dream to paint full time. And that’s what she does now.

Coral Noel Yang Art collaborated with renowned umbrella brand Rainstory in Taiwan and together created a one of a kind gift art umbrella based on Coral’s abstract collage work “Kaleidoscope I”. The painting was created out of a whimsical idea to up-cycle used paper colour palette into a collage artwork during the March 2020 lockdown in Auckland. Out of a dozen paintings competing, ‘Kaleidoscope I ‘was chosen to be the design for a special gift launch.
