Nester and Twill
Esther Remnant, aka Nester, is crazy about the wild side of New Zealand. Our creatures and landscapes inspire her as she strives to reveal the quirky character behind the familiar. She is a skilled print maker who works in a variety of mediums, including dry point etching, lino carving and relief print work (and is the proud owner of a stunning vintage 1903 table top press from Johnny Mulvay).
Karuna Peralta, aka Twill, is an accomplished pattern designer and weaver of exquisite fabrics. She has worked for range of prestigious European design houses before turning freelance and establishing a studio in New Zealand. Her work focuses on traditional techniques, quality natural materials and vibrant colour combinations inspired by her surroundings, experiences and research findings.
Together, Nester and Twill share a studio in a one-time, rail-way cottage that sits in the shade of a decommissioned Bristol Freighter aeroplane, at the Founders Railway park in Nelson, where they have combined their vast talents and experience to produce a range of stunning designs celebrating some the unique creatures and perspectives that make up New Zealand.
