Fleur Wickes

Fleur Wickes has been an exhibiting artist for over 30 years.

She began as a portrait photographer, while also writing short stories and poems. She completed the prestigious Bill Manhire Writing course at Victoria University, subsequently getting her writing published.

In 2010 Fleur began drawing the words and poems she was writing: the shapes she made the letters adding depth and meaning to the words. She has continued to make her written-­word artworks, and has work in private collections throughout New Zealand, and also in USA, Australia and England.

Fleur's artistic process involves a unique combination of photographs, word-work, painting, still life and her own overdrawing. Overdrawing adds texture, depth and layers to the artworks, making each print in an edition unique.

In November 2021, Fleur's beautiful studio, created to be both a working space and a showroom which feels like an apartment, featured in an eight page spread in Your Home and Garden magazine.

For Artist Open Studios 2022, the artist is showcasing a wide range of her artwork, including pieces from her most recent collection, and brand new work shown for the first time during AOS.

Come meet Fleur, come soak up the atmosphere of her studio, come see the artwork in real life.
