New Zealand books at their best

Heather Hunt

Heather is an illustrator and exhibiting artist who has spent her life learning about the world by drawing it. Her characters and the scenes they inhabit emerge out of a research process that involves observing, photographing, reading, writing, conversations and, above all, hundreds of drawings. Heather’s much-loved ‘Backyard Kiwi’ character is the face of one of New Zealand’s most successful kiwi recovery projects and inspired the work for her award-winning picture book, Kiwi, the real story (Storylines Notable Book Award, NZ Post Book Award finalist and winner of the Children’s Choice Award NF, LIANZA award finalist).
