"Wharenga Tairāwhiti" was created as the poster image for PangeaSeed Foundation's recent Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans activation in Gisborne on the North Island of New Zealand.
"This piece shows the vibrancy and diversity of the sea life of New Zealand waters, in particular, the coast of Tairawhiti. The creatures are joyfully, and playfully, riding the crest of the same wave. It is a reminder of the joy and pleasure that we can all take from the ocean, that humans are a part of but that our inclusion should be harmonious and balanced with the environment and ecosystems that are already there."

Rebecca ter Borg is an illustrator based in Auckland, New Zealand. She has recently turned to paint and larger scale work, in addition to her illustration practice, after being inspired by the potential of 'Artivism' and the possibilities involved with connecting with people and communities. She loves having a chance to be part of meaningful projects whenever possible that promote and encourage the kaitiaki (guardianship) of nature but also enjoys indulging in aimless, fun drawing; all kinds of people, magic and silly bugs.
