Faster than a V8 car and rarer than a kiwi, the New Zealand falcon specialises on chasing life prey and is one of just four birds of prey native to New Zealand.
Working for the better part of a month, using a variety of fine ink pens, artist Hannah Shand has captured this incredible bird. Using a reference photo taken by Wellington photographer Janice McKenna at Wingspan Birds of Prey Trust to accurately portray this versatile and adaptable bird, Hannah has created a limited edition print of her original ink drawing.
Edition Size: 80
Image Dimensions Small: 297mm (w) x 210mm (h)
Image Dimensions Medium: 420mm (w) x 297mm (h)
Kapiti Coast artist Hannah Shand specialises in detailed animal sketches, with a passion for New Zealand birds.
Hannah's realistic drawings are created using fine tip black ink pens. Skillfully applying different pressures, she carefully renders fine details of the animal's feathers, fur, skin or scars.
Taking inspiration from the abundance of bird-watching spots, bush walks and incredible scenery near her studio Hannah uses her art to showcase the beauty of New Zealand's unique wildlife. She hopes to inspire others to care for our animals and works with local conservation groups to raise money through her art and promoting the work they're doing.
Hannah's work is shown in select galleries across New Zealand.
