Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival

Garden & Art Trail

Tropical Vibe in Arataki

Travel experiences in Bali and Aitutaki have inspired this gardener’s casual tropical island vibe garden. Pergola seating beside her WILDHEART Art studio offers a relaxing, cool spot in the summer heat and is enjoyed by her art students, family and friends. A creatively designed vegetable garden, bananas, citrus, hibiscus and frangipani, all colour her tropical garden world. Strong bold colour is explored, expressed and celebrated in her painting style.
