Additional Information

The chorus of morning birdsong is found along the Eastern Walkway in the suburb of Breaker Bay on the Miramar Peninsula in Wellington Harbour. Within this thin strip of land along the southeast coast of Miramar Peninsula the native tūī and pīwakawaka sing, with Barretts Reef, the Pencarrow lighthouses and the Rimutaka Range sitting in the background on a unusually calm day. 
The Peninsula is underway with becoming a ‘Predator Free Zone’ and is progressing well with the increase in birdlife very noticeable. The area is also abundant in wharariki (mountain flax), tī kōuka (cabbage tree), kawakawa, pōhutukawa  and a mix of other NZ native trees and plants which provide a rich habitat for the local birdlife.

Artist bio

Michelle Bellamy is a contemporary painter living in Nelson, specialising in capturing the New Zealand landscape with exquisite detail.

An avid mountaineer, Bellamy takes inspiration from exploring the corners and nooks of New Zealand’s lakes and surrounding inhabited landscapes. Back in the studio she creates meticulously detailed large and mid-scale paintings in acrylic on board. Her captivating geographic representations register and acknowledge a human presence on the landscape through the inclusion of familiar features such as South Island cribs and huts, set amongst exquisitely rendered tussock grasses and native flora. Bellamy’s precision brushwork and skilful layering of colour serves to intensify the clarity of New Zealand’s natural light and beauty.
