Philippa Bentley

Philippa Bentley is a multidisciplinary artist, inspired by nature, with ecology and environmental concerns at the heart of her work. “I love to retain a sense of wonder in the world.”

Philippa exhibits regularly and has works held in local and international collections. Her work frequently references natural history collections and archives, and contains an image within an image.

Philippa has two senior academic prizes from the University of Auckland but had drawn, painted and written since she could remember and ultimately committing to a career as an artist was the natural path. Philippa has been working professionally as an artist since 2005.

She has won awards in painting, printmaking and design and been a finalist in a number of New Zealand and international art awards.

Philippa will have works in one of the eight houses on the Tour.
