Proudly part of our Kiwiana Collection!


The endangered and protected Kea is one of the most intelligent birds in the world. They are a unique problem-solving parrot, often causing havoc in the alpine and forested environments of the South Island of NZ.  Difficulty: 3.5/5

This painting is less detailed for those wanting gorgeous kiwi wildlife on their wall, without the small intricate details that may be difficult.  We really hope you enjoy this, because we enjoyed creating it for you!  We have a detailed version too!

Magnetic Poster Frame:

Our picture hangers make it easy for you to display your works of art and constantly swap out what's on display without damaging your pieces.  Add a black (teak sold out) magnetic picture hanger to your order for only an extra $18.  Save $4 as the frames are $22 each if you buy without a painting.


DIY Stretched Canvas Frame:

The other framing option is our DIY stretched frame kit for only $18 ($20 if you purchase without a painting).  This DIY kit is easy to use and allows you to transform your painting into a professionally presented artwork with a taut, wrinkle-free canvas stretched over a sturdy wooden frame, creating a polished and gallery-ready appearance.  The process pictures are shown in photos above, and video will be added to our "education" page on our website
