Rosemary StockerA woman of many trades, throughout her 45 years in Taupo, she's been a hairdresser (and owned her own salon) worked in interior design, owned an operated our art gallery and artists supplies for 6 years.Since closing the gallery I have been involved with some of my artists when they are having workshops. Taking a limited supply of watercolours, paper, canvases, brushes and oils. I will happily order art supplies on request.My new passion along with my beading is Art Clay Silver.Since having workshops with Ingrid in 2010 I have exhibited with Active Arts Taupo, in October 2010. I received a Merit Award for the Trident piece and sold all 5 pieces. There was also a peoples choice award where I received a number of votes although another artist received the award. It is interesting to read what other people think about your work.I have also been working on other passions. Card-making, knitting beautiful yarns for shawl/scarves, straight scarves, and sewing felted silk/yarns for scarves. Also recently photographic work. All of these items are made under my label Artenz Creations.I am now working on replenishing stock and going to Art in the Park, Roberts Street Reserve most Saturdays (weather permitting) extra days for holiday weekends. There is also a varied group of like minded Taupo artists using different mediums. This is a must see experience for all.
