Warkworth based Ramari Tauroa-Tibble’s creative work started later in life with designing and making her own concrete garden sculptures.
After a 10-year break, to look after her parents full-time she found the urge to be creative calling her to do more and that’s when she found her absolute passion for painting in acrylics and oils when she could.
She is a self-taught artist. As she has had no formal training a lot of her previous paintings have been gifted to family and friends who live both here and in Australia.
Ramari has often used the koru and other Maori symbols to design her own artwork. Her passion stems from the beauty she sees around her; she enjoys painting landscapes, sea and beach scenes and uses the koru as a symbol to design her own artwork.
Ramari started painting full-time in January 2019 when her passion turned into an obsession. Life experiences whether joy or sadness are incorporated in every painting.
“My medium of choice is oil, which I use over acrylic, I enjoy seeing a painting start in acrylics and then come to life in oils.”
I do not have a gallery/studio that is accessible at this stage.
