About

Artisan HQ, on the road

In 2016, Derek Payne and Liz Cresswell decided to leave the corporate world behind and follow their passion – gardens and in particular garden art. Leaving  their home on Waiheke Island, they are travelling New Zealand in a motorhome with their miniature schnauzer pup, Lily.

Having developed a number of gardens of their own, they were inspired by the gardens they visited around the country. Many of the gardens  and in particular artisans, creating art for these gardens were hidden gems, undiscovered unless passing by their front doors.

GardenArtisan.co.nz aims to bring the same inspiration to gardeners or garden lovers that Derek and Liz have enjoyed in their travels. At the moment the site is “under construction” as material is compiled.

We look forward to bringing further inspiration soon.
