Endemic was painted in honour of a dear friend. We'd sit and listen to them from our home.
Grey Warblers or "Riroriro" fill the canopys of forests throughout New Zealand. Endemic is an interpretation of the colours I feel when I hear their song throughout the bush.
"People call grey warblers dull, but they're the subconscious sound of New Zealand."
– Graeme Hill, Campaign Manager for the grey warbler in Forest & Bird's 2007 New Zealand's bird of the year competition
