We have a passion for representing local makers, artists and designers. Every product in our store has a story behind it and that story begins with a passionate Kiwi, out there in the world investing in themselves and their creative endeavours. We are thrilled to bring your their stories and present you with their creations.
For a truly stunning piece of art we highly recommend an Angie Dennis print. Angie is one of our most embraced artists here at Creative and Brave. Hold your cursor over the image to see the level of detail for yourself. All of Angie’s prints come hand signed and include a separate info page featuring the artist’s bio and/or background about the inspiration behind the print itself.
Established Auckland artist Angie Dennis has been painting professionally since 2002. Angie studied environmental science which perhaps explains her love for preserving flora and fauna in her artworks. Angie is continually inspired by the unique landscape of New Zealand and is constantly pushing boundaries on how she sees life in her new found home.
Love Winter is a boutique jewellery business based in Auckland, and Del Winter is the fantastically talented jeweller behind the brand. Del's natural talent for design can be seen in the considered lines and balanced shapes of each piece she creates.
Born out of a desire to create pretty pieces for everyday wear, Del Winter set up a studio at home to do just that. With a background in graphic design and music, creativity is what drives her to turn her passion for the arts into a creative business.
We are thrilled to stock her gorgeous jewellery and get excited every time she adds to her range!

We have always felt that Texan Art Schools was a bit confusing for our customers, especially those just getting to know us; what did we have to do with Texas or Texans?!? Were we a school?? Or did we sell art supplies??
However, it wasn't easy to find a new name for such an iconic business that's been around for so long, we really wanted to find the right name...
