Kyla Cresswell | BIO < back to artists

 Wellington based artist Kyla Cresswell was born in Invercargill and has spent large blocks of time in Dunedin, Japan, England and Canada. Cresswell’s delicate work often explores the physical impact of the elements on the environment and the consequences of human occupation of the land. Working mainly in mezzotint and drypoint, she strives to find a sense of stillness and to show a quiet celebration of nature. Cresswell has exhibited in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, Japan and Canada. Her work is held in private and public collections in many of the aforementioned countries.
