Mixed Media Artist & WOW Designer
Philippa works in her newly created studio, using a wide range of media and employing her skills in painting, digital printing, textile arts, ceramics, and sculpture to create pieces that are inspired by her love of New Zealand nature and landscape, and of colour, texture and pattern.
Philippa has been a regular designer and finalist in World of WearableArt (WOW), having had eight garments included in WOW shows. She won the Aotearoa Section in 2015 with her piece ‘On Reflection’ and placed third in the Creative Excellence Section in 2016 with her piece ‘Minuet & Trio’. Each of her garments have been designed to tell a story and each uses a different media and style.
In her spare time, Philippa enjoys sewing, tapestry, knitting, quilting, gardening, and exploring the bush and beaches of New Zealand. Her studio is open to visitors, by appointment.
