Artist Profile – Awhina Osborne

Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Tukorehe

The first rangatahi artist in residence at the Māoriland Film Festival, Āwhina is an environmental artist specialising in the personification of the natural Māori world.  Nurtured by whānau, her love for Papatūanuku (Earth Mother) is her source.

‘I just love to draw!’

Āwhina works with a graphic designer to digitise her artwork for sale. She is supported by many whānau members in pursuing her passion to draw and become an artist.
