Rochester artist Sonya Else was joint winner of the people’s choice best artwork at the Rochester Art Exhibition last week.
She was selected by the attendees who voted on their favourite piece of art.
‘‘I was thrilled, honoured and blown away (by the win),’’ Mrs Else said.
Her piece Perfect Picture is a memory of her experience in Tamborine Mountain in Queensland’s Gold Coast hinterland.
She used fabric paint, wool, cotton fabric and a recycled material called Tyvek which she heat-treated to create mountains and boulders.
‘‘I really wanted to add depth to it,’’ she said.
The project took 12 months to complete.
Mrs Else has been working on art quilts for the past 10 years and enjoys working with new materials.
She also worked on a 2m lotus pond which was a major attraction at the exhibition.
Gisborne artist Helen Cottle was the other winner.
