Established in Mount Maunganui since 2011, Art + Body Creative Studio is the creative brain child of Julie Paama-Pengelly, a wahine Maori artist who has practiced in Aotearoa's visual arts and education for over 30 years.

With its own individual personality and air (and a literal bus), Art + Body is home to artists from a variety of creative backgrounds with a similar passion for people and artistry.
