NCEA Level 3 Painting Folio: The Shaping of Identity
Anna Clarke, Kerikeri High School Outstanding Scholarship 'Ideas for Africa' I am strongly influenced by found images – magazines etc. – and turned to National Geographic to find initial pictures around an African theme. This theme was conceived because my mother’s side of the family comes from Africa. Over the year I was influenced by my experiences, such as skiing and time spent on the coast, to paint elements of the New Zealand landscape.
