As a distinguished New Zealand sculptor, Storm blends the natural with the narrative through her mastery of clay, enriched by elements of wood, metal, and glass. Her art spans imposing outdoor Totems and garden sculptures to intimate pieces for indoor or wall display, each telling a visual story inspired by the allure of imperfection.
Drawn to the asymmetrical, aged, and worn, Davenport crafts sculptures that compel viewers to touch and engage. Operating from her "Mahana Rd Studio" in Paraparaumu Beach, Davenport is an integral part of the local art scene, opening her gallery space by appointment and during the Kāpiti Coast Arts Trail. Alongside her creative endeavours, she is a tutor of hand-building ceramics at Ōtaki Pottery Club, sharing her expertise and passion for clay.
Rita is the creative force behind Renown Art Studio, a vibrant and distinctive studio/gallery located at 100 Renown Road, Raumati South. As the sole artist of this unique space, Rita brings her visions to life through a diverse array of artworks that reflect her unique style and artistic flair. The studio operates on a by-arrangement basis, offering visitors a personalised experience to explore Rita's creations at their leisure.
Rita's commitment to her craft is evident in every piece displayed, with the studio serving as both a creative haven and a showcase for her talents. Her work is a blend of innovation and expression, inviting art lovers to engage with her pieces that encapsulate the funky and eclectic essence of her artistic journey.
