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,
if interested, please use the Contact button in Menu and message me details.
Honoured to have my latest Tui painting
on the cover of the latest Coromandel Life Magazine!

This mag is a widely distributed, visually stunning,
glossy mag filled with art & artists.

the former being New Zealand Artists magazine in 2015
with my flying owl, and a 4 page feature inside.
This mag, to this date, remains their biggest selling issue!

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’.
40 Inspirational, guidance cards,
with Reina Cottier’s original designs, and uplifting words or support & guidance.
Included is a leaflet with a brief explaination, extended meaning, of each card in more detail.
Cards come in a grey velvet drawstring pouch.
“You are about to experience the energy of my art with guiding & inspirational words. This deck was created intuitively, both the art & the words came ‘in the moment’ with very little alteration or editing. Left ‘raw’ I felt they had a power that was more pure than if I reworked & thought about it too much. “
Also available in Te Reo Māori (with English subtitles) Please message me if you would prefer this option.
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.
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.
