Jamie Harkins - Aotearoa Artist

Have you ever seen those pictures scraped into beach sand, appearing to be three-dimensional when photographed? Have you ever wondered who does that and how? Well, wonder no more. Introducing Jamie Harkins Bma.

Always wanting to be an artist, right from primary school, Jamie studied at Waikato Polytechnic 1993-1994, Toi Ohomai 2012, and Wintec in 2013. “I am proud of completing my degree as an adult student and then going on to be featured in a lot of media outlets worldwide and getting the most popular article in the NZ Herald in 2014. I’ve had a feature on ‘7 Sharp’, been commissioned by the government, done a cover for Stab surf magazine, been the lead artist invited to the Arava desert in Israel for an arts festival in 2014, and I was also invited to a 3D arts festival called Dubai Canvas in 2018. I’ve been a part of many projects but personally I like community projects where the emphasis is the protection of nature, wellbeing of people or promotion of the arts.” Having studied the Masters at an early age, Jamie became inspired to try out all their styles. “My artistic drive though mostly comes out of a love for creativity; I’m happiest when I’m making things. The years of learning about drawing from my grandmother, who also painted, were very valuable. She would sit and draw with me.”
