Is your office, lounge or boardroom tired, dull and boring?  
Does it need some spicing up with something original, new and exciting to look at?   
Do you need to entice your clients and friends with a conversation piece to help with those 'what to say next' moments?  
Or how about impressing others with a stylish new backdrop for your Zoom meetings

Collette Fergus Artist

I'm a contemporary New Zealand artist based in Waikato. I specialise in New Zealand art, particularly mixed media abstract art and unique pet portraits. Talk to me today about an artwork created just for you.


I'm Collette, a passionate and diverse New Zealand contemporary artist based in Hamilton NZ. My art is a vibrant reflection of the beauty and uniqueness of New Zealand. 

With a focus on mixed media and acrylics, I meticulously craft each piece using top-quality Schminke and Golden paints and mediums to bring my creative visions to life.

One of my artistic passions lies in painting pet portraits, and I have a distinctive vision when it comes to capturing the essence of your beloved fur babies on canvas. Don't hesitate to reach out if you're interested in immortalising your furry companion in a one-of-a-kind painting that will forever celebrate their spirit.

I warmly welcome commissions for pet portraits as well as contemporary abstract art. Whether you're considering adding an artistic touch to your home or business, I would be honoured to collaborate with you in creating the perfect piece to enhance your space and evoke emotions through art. 

My goal is not only to provide you with beautiful artwork but also to share the joy and essence of New Zealand's diverse beauty through my creative expressions.

I have been a collector of Collette’s art for many years including several from her Pet Portraits range and the 100 Dresses series. Some of the pieces were commissioned, and some purchased straight from the gallery wall. The large Pet Portrait has been an instant talking point for all my visitors since I first hung it. Her technique is exemplary and the minute attention to detail to capture my pet Edelweiss’ characteristics and personality was incredible. Collette is wonderful to deal with, and her art remains a firm favourite of mine.

I have four of Collette's art, and I love them to bits. Coll brings bright colours and detail, which I like as they make me feel happy and they are fun, just like Coll. Coll listens to what I want, and the small details and personal touch she puts in are just beautiful like Coll.
