Wellington artist, and dear friend of Celia’s, Heather Main was commissioned to paint Celia’s portrait in July 2015. Celia was the runaway winner of a public poll to find the most deserving person to fill a space in the New Zealand Portrait Gallery’s national collection.

As a part of this, Heather also created a wonderful sound portrait to capture the many aspects of Celia’s life, work and values. If you are a fan of Celia’s wisdom – then working your way through the sound portrait is a must.
