Iona Winter (Waitaha/Kāi Tahu) is of Indigenous and colonised ancestry, and as a result avoids confining herself to form. She is widely published and anthologised, and has authored two collections: Te Hau Kāika (2019), then the wind came (2018). Iona lives on the East Otago Coast.
Victoria McIntosh (Pākehā) lives in Ōtepoti.
Victoria’s practice moves between wearable jewellery, soft sculpture and assemblage. A collector and hoarder by nature, she works with found objects as a form of storytelling that interweaves both the personal and political.
