‘Kokako and Kohekohe’ is an artwork of one of New Zealand’s rare birds, the North Island Kokako, a bird fondly known for its incredible haunting song that echoes through the forest. The bird perches on a cluster of blooming Kohekohe, a native New Zealand tree that the Kokako like to feed on. Hannah photographed Kahurangi the special female Kokako at Pukaha National Wildlife Centre, where they have done incredible work to help the species. After introducing Kokako in 2007, they now have counted 40 pairs and 1 single which live over the mountain in the Wairarapa. She also studied and photographed the Kohekoke trees on one of her favourite walking tracks along the Waikanae River.

About the Artist

Hannah Shand

"The joy of expression – big swooping background moves of brush and paint over canvas, then careful respectful strokes for detail, letting the buttery paint slip and slide into the spaces it should fill. To create something visual is a powerful handmade and heartfelt experience.“
