Bernie Ross

Bernie Ross is a skilled artist who specialises in mixing flax and fibre to create her unique pieces. Originally from a farming community in South Auckland, Bernie currently resides in Whangamata, Coromandel, where she draws inspiration from the breathtaking landscapes and ever-changing views. As a weaver, Bernie understands the importance of the whenua or land and integrates this into her practice. She acknowledges that her formative years in Auckland were critical in shaping her values and deep respect for the environment, which is evident in her work.
