Bernadette Ross

A mixed flax and fibre artist, Bernie became a member of Creative Coromandel early in 2017 after the resignation of the incumbent. Bernie has found it a delight to be involved in the long term strategy for the development of the arts. She is currently Chair of The Arts Collective in Whangamata, a group whose members encompass a wide variety of art forms. This arts organization, like Creative Coromandel, is in its infancy but is developing a profile in the Coromandel.  

Bernie completed a degree in Te Maunga Kura Toi (Bachelor of Maori Art) in 2013.
