Anonymous asked: Hey! I lovelove your work. You truly inspire me, and the fact you're kiwi too :)I was wondering how old you were when you started your bachelor of fine arts at AUT? I recently applied but I didn't get accepted (I'm 17 btw,just finishing school). I'm feeling pretty bummed.
You should come off anon so I can answer privately!
Here’s a study I did recently, you can see this and more on a small feature on the great Studio Home blog!

Busy as heck!
At Easter-time this year I was asked to paint on an ostrich egg for The Department Store in Auckland. My egg then partially inspired Karen Walker in her Resort range, which is in stores now! You can see the outcome below.
This from Karen:
“Our resort 2013 collection is inspired by weather. At the same time as we were working on designing the collection we commissioned Henrietta to paint an Easter egg as part of The Department Store’s Easter celebrations. We loved the egg and bought it for our own collection as soon as we saw it. Soon after purchasing it we were looking for a graphic approach to interpreting weather isobars and looked to Henrietta’s egg for a starting point for this. Our team then took scientific isobars, Henrietta’s egg and our own style and came up with this season’s resort graphic.”
