Looking forward to the March 2022 event!
Always the first 2 weekends of March 🙂 (Covid permitting!)
For more info, which will be updated as the event draws near go to:
I started meditating in March 2020. Not long after I started, (literally days,)
I started painting this series,
and seems as though I cant paint anything else
until this is out of my system.
At this stage of my art journey, I am very happy to go with the flow and allow what wants to be without trying to over commit to creating anything, or any subject, or go with something that is not flowing happily.
In other words, Im in a space of total allowance these days… only that which brings me joy or not at all. 🙂
Most of these have sold, but there are a couple available,

With almost 30 years of self employment (in 4 businesses) under my belt, I’ll share with you how I made my art my business using Social Media, (and other online sites) & how I increased art sales online with a relatively small following, and then built that following up with genuine, authentic input. How I built a global following (from New Zealand) and that translated into regular art sales across the world.
Also, how to make the most of the followers you do have,
rather than constantly trying to gain more.
3 hour or full day (bring your own device) workshops.
Can be one on one, or groups.
(online Skype sessions available)
Because there are so many variants with these bespoke courses, it is very difficult to put set prices up. Please use the CONTACT form below to discuss your /your groups needs with me, and I can give you a firm cost for everything, or we can custom something to suit your budget 🙂
ENQUIRE / CONTACT Reina here:
“The best thing I ever did was invest in a full day workshop with Reina. She knew how to connect with everyone and was very attentive and patient with all our individual needs. I learned so many new techniques that has helped my art to progress to the next level which, as a beginner, was what I was hoping for. Love her attitude & sense of humour too! Cant wait for the next one!”
-Cheryl Lovegrove- Artist
“Reina’s social media workshop is so practicaland informative. She uses live examples of her own successful social media strategies which is so helpful for all aritsts sellling their work through social media. channels! Totally ecommend Reina.”
-Kathryn Tsui – former Curator & Administrator of the Mercury Bay Art Escape.
“We were very pleased to have Reina as our workshop tutor last year. She was generous in sharing her techniques using stencils, rollers, overlaying, blending and fine work with free flowing inks & paint. Reina did a group demonstration and also gave us all individual attention. We all came away inspired and some of us have continued with inks and others are using the techniques learned . I would highly recommend Reina as a tutor .”
Morrinsville Lyceum Club
“I have been an artist for twenty years and approx four years ago I recognised the need to build a social media platform to grow my sales and my brand. Knowing little in this area I met with Reina Cottier and spent an outstanding day with her in Tairua to build my understanding of this outlet. Reina’s knowledge and expertise was simply amazing and she set me on a path to significantly improve my sales results and to enjoy more success without the reliance on galleries who take a substantial amount of my sale price as commission. I am so grateful to Reina for sharing her expertise and ongoing support. I strongly recommend her to you if you are wishing to grow your art business.
-Gaylene Lonergan- Artist

Currently I am preparing for this event. This is my 6th year and I so love being a part of it. Artists must have a selection of original art for sale, and with that I also have prints, cards, calendars, coasters my Guidance Cards, and other merchandise available. People get to come and see my studio, and talk to me about my art and my process.
If you have any questions , please dont hesitate to ask, there is a ‘Contact’ button here at the top of the page, or im on Instagram & Facebook: ‘Reina Cottier Art’.
I think this has to be one of my favourite pieces I have ever created. It has a vibrancy, an energy about it,.. its so alive and raw. I have reluctantly let it go to a gallery , but I wont be disappointed it it doesn’t sell (lol!) Id love to keep it 🙂
Its a mixed media piece: collage, ink, acrylic.
back from holiday, went to Peru for a couple of weeks, including a few days in the Amazon/Jungle, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and La Paz, Bolivia. INCREDIBLE trip, epic adventure!
Here is a short vid of updates. Ive been painting for a few days, showing latest work, mediums used and mentioning the fabulous brushes I bought last year, and now on my second set.
I have just returned from 2 weeks in Peru, and 2 days in Bolivia. An epic adventure, non stop experiences, a visual feast, awesome people, not really adequate words available to describe the experience, or feeling one has whilst there. Vibrancy, depth, history, passion, sacred, ancient, connected, energy… it was a once in a lifetime journey, I will never forget. Cant wait to start painting, and see what evolves.
The final video, from conception to install. A collation of some of the videos I took along the way, in the 4 and half months it took to complete this awesome project.
