To soar means more than just to fly; it means to rise swiftly, to feel the wind slipping below you as you ride it higher, higher, higher. Flying is just moving through the air.
This collection is inspired by the birdlife at Muriwai. It is usual to see gannet, fantails and tui's soaring.
Soaring, though, suggests exhilaration, even joy and gives me feelings of movement and freedom! Come soar with me.
The 'Soaring' collection was launched at the Fantail House gallery. I am exhibiting alongside eight other Muriwai based artists.
