Verse of The Day
“I a koutou mahi katoa kaua te amuamu, te tautohetohe; Kia kore ai koutou e whaikupuria, kia tapatahi ai, he tamariki kohakore na te Atua, i waenganui o te whakatupuranga tutu, parori ke, kei roto nei koutou i a ratou e tiaho ana hei rama i te ao; Kia mau pu ki te kupu o te ora; kia hari ai ahau a te ra o te Karaiti, kihai ahau i oma noa, kihai i mahi noa.” (Philippians 2:14-16)

IN PRINT: The Ngunguru sandspit will be the scene adorning 113,000 copies of Northland's white pages next year.

The Ngunguru sandspit will be the scene adorning 113,000 copies of Northland’s white pages next year.

Self-taught Ngunguru artist Serena Dawson beat more than 500 entries in the 2008 Yellow Pages Group Art Award for Northland with her artwork entitled Trip to Ngunguru Sandspit.

She receives a prize of $2000.

Ms Dawson has lived almost all her life near the ocean and says she chose to paint Ngunguru sandspit following debate about the development of the area.

"I love to paint what I’m passionate about, which is why I love to paint beach and bush scenes. We live in such an amazing place, it’s just beautiful and everyone should be able to enjoy it."
