This artwork is based on John's first ever encounter of a ruru years ago while tramping up Mt Arthur. It sat very still in a beech tree quite close to the track while John and his friends walked by remarking on the experience.
This is an image from John's most recent 'Birds at Home' collection. The inspiration for this collection comes from John's ongoing conservation efforts upon his own 2ha block of land in Tasman. When he took the land on it was a barren ex forestry block covered in gorse and bramble. John works hard to cover the majority of the land with regenerating native bush to create a safe haven for the local native birds to thrive in.

John specialises in creating artworks that are accessible and familiar to all kiwis. He thrives on creating images that can enable anyone to become an art lover. By creating these images and sharing stories of his conservation efforts he hopes to be able to encourage others to do what they can to assist in protecting our native birds.
These are photo composite artworks where John has combined his hand drawn native bird artworks with scenes created with photos from across New Zealand.
