Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival


Matthew Brauchli

Matthew Brauchli is fascinated by wildlife. As a kid he spent hours reading books, watching documentaries, and observing any fauna around the home or on walks. His mother’s work inspired his play with sculpting, and later he began to create his own works of art. Matthew is passionate about capturing “moments in time”, and loves working the medium of cast Bronze and Glass to bring fauna to life.
