About Eva-Cherie Artz

Eva-Cherie if Chatham Island born into fifth generation of Maori and Moriori descendant. She lives and creates at her home studio in Owenga, Chatham Islands.

Kia Ora, I’m Artist ‘Eva-Cherie Tuck’ (call me Cherie.) I’m a self-taught artist with my own unique style, depicting the vibrancy of colour, and the fluidity of form, I work predominantly and fluently with dry pastel – more recently creating works with acrylic on canvas.

Drawing on my experiences at sea and life on the Chatham Islands, I’m inspired by seascapes, bird and fish life, as my ancestors were. My works represent a spiritual connection with the land and sea, using defining shapes to portray my subjects and the blending of colour to symbolise emotion and characters aura.
