I’m excited to introduce you to the beautiful portraits by Northland artist; Gillian Buckley.
As a sucker for photo realism, I am captivated by the moments in time and movement she has chosen to capture and really REALLY am looking forward to seeing much more as she develops her work!
Like what you see? Gillian works closely with The Artists Room Gallery in Dunedin and also has lists limited edition fine art prints of chosen works on her site!

Here’s a nice joining of hands and skills for the beginning of the new year!
The team at Walter Crow, in an effort to push beyond their masculine collection of accessories and jewellery, have worked closed with Auckland based, Zora Bell Boyd to release a range of rings based on a fictional tale involving the deadly plant; Hemlock Water Dropwort.
Certainly sounds grim right?!! But the resulting 5 rings are definitely mysterious, magical and precious despite their organic finish.
The story setting the scene for the collaboration finds Walter Crow, the fictional adventurer and namesake of the brand, in Sardinia where he falls in love with a beautiful opera singer who has a horrible accident involving the poisonous plant.
“We’ve never done exclusively female jewellery and Zora challenged us to find the female in Walter’s story. The opportunity to inject some Shakespearean type drama was an exciting prospect,” explains Walter Crow co-founder Peter Bowden.
Working from the reference story, the resulting interpretation finds Zora’s creations landing on a midpoint between her trademark unrestrained style and Walter Crow’s muted colour pallet.
