Most people know her as Kerrie from Diddly Squat New and Used. Sixteen years ago, she moved West from NSW and lutruwita/Tasmania had her straight off the boat.
Moving to Queenstown has not been without its challenges. She has seen the town and its community struggle through immense hardship and sadness. Testament to the resilience and strength of our community, is its current transition and reinvention. Many remote townships lose their identity with growth, ours is being enhanced. Newcomers are embracing our unique lifestyle as proud West Coasters.
Like its people, the West Coast's landscape and colours offer a unique backdrop with vibrant greens, yellows, browns, blues, greens and every shade in between. Going over a hill or mountain completely changes the dynamics, visually and sensory.
Through Kerrie's work, she is attempting to showcase the strength, resilience, compassion, love and devotion the community has for our West Coast.
