Keep NZ Beautiful and Resene Nature Murals Competition 2020

Te Atatu Penisula Mural

This piece is located in Te Atatu Peninsula, Auckland township on the corner of 556 Te Atatu road.

As part of a competition run by ‘Keep New Zealand Beautiful’ and Resene, I was lucky enough to be selected as one of ten to paint a mural in my local community.

Title- Our Planet

The design brief called for an artwork with an environmental message, so for my piece, I created a Mason jar encapsulating our planet earth with the message ‘for safe keeping’. It is meant to be a piece what encourages conversation as that is all it takes to start a movement.

Now, more than ever we need to protect our precious planet, if we each make small changes it will make a huge difference in the future.

“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else with change it”- A fitting quote by Robert Swan OBE


The absolute highlight of this experience was allowing both my kids and ones passing by, the opportunity to put some paint down. I hope that in years to come they will remember the part they played in creating the piece.


I am very grateful for this amazing opportunity and I hope that it encourages more art and colour in our lovely community.

This piece was finished on the 7th of July 2020
