Marine Charts Artwork by Justine Hawksworth Oars

Justine Hawksworth is an Auckland based artist working from her studio in Mount Eden. Her work seeks to resurface memories of childhood summers. Hawksworth's practice is quintessentially kiwiana. Using recycled marine charts as her inspiration and her backdrop, Justine Hawksworth carefully illustrates classic icons from the kiwi summer onto maps and oars- dinghys, tui, snapper, nikau and kina. 

These drawn works celebrate the beauty of the every day, those things in nature that are so familiar to locals. Hawksworth works predominantly in acrylic and pencil and there is a charming quality to her illustrative style. Justine Hawksworth graduated in 1992 from Elam School of Fine Arts with a Bachelors Degree majoring in Applied Design. In 1996 she attended Auckland College of Education to gain a Diploma of Teaching (Secondary). She subsequently taught Art and Design at Macleans College, Bucklands Beach, Auckland.
