The family has been linked to Kakahi ever since. On the family car trips of her childhood, McIntyre got used to her fathers frequent stops for subject matter for painting.

Author Biography

Sara McIntyre was born in Wellington and worked there as a neonatal intensive care nurse for several years. In 2010 she moved to Kakahi in the King Country, where she had been coming to since her family arrived there for a fishing trip in 1960. While working as a district nurse, based at Taumarunui Hospital, she had the opportunity to further explore the area as a photographer. This led to her first solo exhibition at the Anna Miles Gallery in 2016. The Serjeant Gallery, Whanganui, will exhibit her work on May 2020.
