Cecilia Russell, creator of the Lost For Words artworks.

"Lost For Words is my own unique concept: Kiwi scenes created entirely of words!

"The idea for these artworks started when I was teaching at secondary school - way back. I experimented with the idea on and off over some years - but it wasn't until 1994 that I started producing my artworks as prints. And they took off!

"Each one is months of painstaking but satisfying work. And as far as I know, I'm the only one in the world who makes anything like this. (Although I may just be the only one bananas enough to do it.) Lost for Words in Enzed was one of the earliest artworks, and is still going strong - after 20 years - as the best-seller in the series.

"At the beginning of 2015 my daughter Katie Russell, a.k.a Wellington artist KilowattKatie, started a range of t-shirts based on words in my Lost For Words prints.

"Katie now manages my website, online orders, and social media presence.

"In 2017 I created Lost For Words around Tararua, as a commission for Tony Lozell of Tararua."
