"I love the way that art can inspire people and change situations right before your eyes - offering new experiences for the viewer to connect with and I strongly believe in leaving enough room in there for people to make their own judgements and connection with the art.  It's like watching a new language unfold itself on the wall"  kf

 December 2015 

Every summer we hit the road to paint in some pretty Epic spots in New Zealand.  Why not start the summer off with a bang.......  

 It's been a truly incredible year - in so many ways.  Thanks for swinging by and touching our heart's - it's a beautiful thing.  x

June 2015 - Legends Cafe Samoa 

Legends Cafe in Samoa - recently opened up beside the sweeping Pacific Ocean combines art and food in paradise - the new location for The Vanya Taule'alo Gallery.   Nothing makes me smile more than seeing another artists dream and vision come alive - I'm very proud to have artwork on display and look forward to returning soon.

April 2015 -  Wanaka Station Park 

The last of the autumn leaves makes the ultimate backdrop for experimenting with colour and texture.  Using music from Red Rebel Music including the album 'Feeling Fiona' and music from JD Fortune - our Free your Mind Art workshops held in Wellington and Wanaka taught us all a lot.  Sparking a new direction for my own art journey - there is always meaning in the music we hear.  Sometimes it just comes down to this.............. 

April 2015 - Art in the Park 

Set in the beautiful grounds of Minaret Lodge, Wanaka - the Latin Fiesta and Art and Music Festival is a great day out.  Painting live is always inspiring and 2 paintings found their owners........... 

 I love that.

March 2015 - Into the Blue

Our second exhibition at Pacificfusion in the little seaside town of Portobello, Dunedin, New Zealand 

The Deep Abyss - Karina Fay 2014

The Deep Abyss - Karina Fay 2014

The Deep.......

Rising up and out of the ocean

A wave, A mountain, A dream

Rising up out of the deep

A hope, A reality, A new life

We are what we remember

We are what we do

Mystery, Depth and Spirit

Always there beside you

Grab it and embrace it tight

And let it be your guide

by Karina Fay
