*Giclée prints are produced with archival pigment inks by professionals creating gallery quality prints. They do require special care (a google can give you more details information) but in particular touching the surface of the print with your hands, or any scratch across the surface can damage them. They must have acid free materials for mounting and framing. Hanging them out of direct sunlight is recommended to reduce fading. The lifespan of your investment in this fine art print will be affected by how well it’s cared for.


This art print, Kōtuku of Te Hokianga features the White Heron sitting on a rock. It was inspired by my first time seeing this elegant bird in nature. I was visiting Rawene, in the Hokianga, and saw them on leafless trees over the water. I thought I must be mistaken as this elegant bird isn’t very wide spread Aotearoa, New Zealand and is a rare sight. But on further investigation I was delighted to discover there was indeed, a small colony of Kōtuku there. I have been enchanted by them every since.

I loved how this pose really shows off it’s elegance and I wanted to feature it’s beautiful silhouette so placed it on a black background creating a striking contrast. A lovely print neutral toned print of a striking bird.

The Kōtuku of the Skies art print makes a lovely companion to this print if you’re wanting a pair.
