Ro Bradshaw graduated with a BA in anthropology and a BFA in painting from Dunedin School of Art. Her art explores the potential of waste material and addresses a variety of themes, in particular the effect of consumption and tourism on the Otago environment.

Ro uses commercial and industrial waste products, rust, tea and coffee with acrylic paint on canvas or board.  In the smaller still-life works, she also uses roadside rubbish, waste paper and plastic. This rubbish is sorted, cleaned and collaged under printed transparencies to make up the artwork.  

​The New Zealand falcon, karearea, features in the larger landscape works to symbolise both an observer of the changing landscape and a threatened species.


Ro’s work is held in national and international collections.
