Handle with care - Series

This on-going series titled "Handle with care" draws attention to our native New Zealand bird species. Delicate layers and detailing within each painting serve to enhance their precious nature and each is encircled with recycled barbed wire, requiring that the artworks themselves are handled with care. The national status of the birds are endemic for the Fantail and Tui while the Karearea is recovering its numbers.
