This zine work was inspired by the ocean and the beautiful landscapes of Aotearoa. I used an overlay technique to create a variety of different textures and colours. I wanted to capture the beauty of the unknown and the natural beauty of the New Zealand coastline. Combining both my love of my beautiful country and the ocean. I wanted to educate people on the importance of 'exploring your own backyard, before exploring someone else's' and the importance of preserving the natural world. Allowing myself to truly appreciate and embrace the beautiful and diverse country I get to call home.
