He wahi Ataahua a Aotearoa “New Zealand is beautiful”. The basis of Ramari's exhibition is inspired by seascapes from around the Rodney area. A selection of the paintings are also inspired by self-realised visions and self-designed artwork using the koru and other Maori symbols; these are inspired by love but also our need as humans to start looking after our families, planet and all other living creatures.

Warkworth based Ramari Tauroa-Tibble’s creative work started later in life with designing and making her own concrete garden sculptures. After a 10-year break, to look after her parents full-time she found the urge to be creative calling her to do more and turned to painting in acrylics and oils when she could. Ramari is a self-taught artist. As she has had no formal training a lot of her previous paintings have been gifted to family and friends who live both here and in Australia. Ramari has often used the koru and other Maori symbols to design her own artwork.

Her passion stems from the beauty she sees around her; landscapes, sea and beach scenes where colour can change dramatically from her subtle pastels to the bold fiery colours. Ramari started painting full-time in January 2019 when her passion turned into an obsession. Life experiences whether joy or sadness are incorporated in every painting. “My medium of choice is oil, which I use over acrylic, I enjoy seeing a painting start in acrylics and then come to life in oils.”
