Kia ora, hello.
I’m Zenobia Southcombe. I’m an award-nominated author with over a dozen published books and zines sold worldwide. I’m a painter, mixed media artist, and award-winning photographer – I’m also a gardener passionate about wildlife and sustainability.
Join me to explore the world through my eyes. Read my blog to join me in travelling Aotearoa/New Zealand with my camera, to stumble through the messy but ever-so-satisfying creative process, to discover the unique wildlife in our backyard, and to express emotion and imagination through art.
Here, you’ll find my children’s books, non-fiction & memoir; impressionist & surreal/symbolist painting, and nature photography.
