Esther works in various printmaking mediums, including relief print work and drypoint etching.  She is crazy about the wild side of New Zealand nature, and birds and animals in general.  These are her true source of inspiration,  with a certain nostalgia for old children’s book illustrations.  She captures the quirky character behind these familiar creatures and the characters awaken as the the story unfolds.
