The strange little flightless bird New Zealander's have taken on as their icon has been beautifully reproduced in this limited edition print by Rachel Walker.
'Evening Kiwi' shows a brown kiwi emerging from the forest undergrowth to hunt its evening meal. Rachel has captured this little character seeming in mid-motion surrounded by evening drenched blues and greens.

Napier born artist Rachel Walker (aka Walkerillo) can count living and painting in rural France and London, designing illustrations for the Royal New Zealand ballet, and taking tea in Bilbo Baggin's kitchen among the highlights of her career so far.
Rachel graduated from Massey University in 2008, coming away with a design degree. While her degree leads her into a career in graphic and textile design it wasn't long before long she returned to her childhood love of hand-drawn illustrations.
Currently painting within the theme of animals, extinction and evolution Rachel works mainly in watercolour, ink and stencilled spray paint.
