He wahi Ataahua a Aotearoa “New Zealand is beautiful”.

The basis of Ramari's exhibition is inspired by seascapes from around the Rodney area.

A selection of the paintings are also inspired by self-realised visions and self-designed artwork using the koru and other Maori symbols; these are inspired by love but also our need as humans to start looking after our families, planet and all other living creatures.

Warkworth-based Ramari Tauroa-Tibble’s creative work started later in life with designing and making her own concrete garden sculptures.

After a 10-year break, to look after her parents full-time she found the urge to be creative, calling her to do more and turned to painting in acrylics and oils when she could.

A self-taught artist, she has had no formal training.

A lot of her previous paintings have been gifted to family and friends who live both here and in Australia.

Her passion stems from the beauty she sees around her; landscapes, sea and beach scenes where colour can change dramatically from her subtle pastels to the bold fiery colours.

Ramari started painting full-time in January 2019 when her passion turned into an obsession.

Life experiences whether joy or sadness are incorporated in every painting.

“My medium of choice is oil, which I use over acrylic, I enjoy seeing a painting start in acrylics and then come to life in oils.”
