This month at the Coolstore Gallery we are exhibiting the intricate and unique works of art by Beth McGill, who paints incredible depictions of native birds and insects on bird feathers.  

"I have been painting on feathers for 11-12 years now. My love of birds and New Zealand especially provide the ever-evolving one-off delicate intricate pieces that I paint."

Beth is a Palmerston North based artist of Ngāti Whatua and Ngāti Maniapoto descent.
