Hi, I'm Karina Simpson - Store Manager


I have been a part of the Gordon Harris team for an amazing fourteen years. Originally I worked in the Wellington store for eight of them before moving up to Auckland where you can now find me managing the Newmarket store.

I have always been surrounded by art and studied at UCOL School of Arts in Wanganui (formally Quay School of the Arts). My main medium at the moment is watercolours where I focus on clouds and the sky. I love how accessible the medium is but also challenging at the same time. It's a great paint to work with if you are limited on space, which I was living on a boat for 9 years.

We are a pretty busy store with a diverse team of artists and students who offer a wide range of knowledge to our amazing customers. Like our team our customer base is mixed as well, ranging from professional artists, hobbyists, students, creative businesses, graphic designers, the list goes on! Whatever you might need we are here to help you find it and offer advice!

I look forward to seeing you in the Newmarket store soon and assisting you with the wide range of art supplies and books we have available.
