Image Vault have been working in the art industry for over 70 years, using their knowledge of fine art to produce high quality art prints. Based in Christchurch - their products are manufactured on site by an experienced team, and as a proud Kiwi business they publish a variety of local artists. Each piece is printed from high quality digital files taken from the original work, and using a wide variety of media, they tailor their process to each style of artwork - creating a high quality piece that is UV safe and has a long lasting laminate finish.

Now based in rural Waikato, Jane Crisp is originally from Auckland - and creates some of our most recognisable, well loved pieces featuring an array of Aotearoa’s native flora and fauna.
“The inter-connectivity of the natural world is what captivates me. I do not paint actual scenes or situations as a photographic camera would capture, rather, I paint an exploration of metaphysical realism from my perspective, as an observer of energy and light, where I attempt to transmute the energy of a situation or experience and invite the light out of the darkness.
I play with portraiture, placing New Zealand’s native birds upon pedestals; I admire their wisdom and integrity through the legends which have been told. The birds in my work become personifications of the soul and my paintings manifest into expressions of the human condition, a reflection of the world that surrounds me and an interpretation of the way through.”
Working predominantly in acrylic on canvas, you can see the fine tuned details, and gentle brush strokes in all of Jane’s pieces - to a degree that they are often times mistaken for photographs.
