The Oaks Gallery – 30 Driving Creek Rd, Coromandel

The Oaks Gallery – home and studio of Jacquie Ellis

As a visual artist of light and colour, capturing the light is everything when I paint.  It is always the light that offers soft or vibrant changes to each work, whether it be in my chosen mediums of pastel, oil or acrylics.  It is my inspiration, changing with the  seasons, the subtle tones and values transforming shapes and landscapes in just a matter of seconds as they are laid on the canvas. My style is flexible, my genres varied, and the mediums I use altering with each piece, offering the viewer an opportunity to enjoy a wide, unique and original range of artwork.

Coromandel seems the ideal place to nurture my art passion, so I moved here last year and opened The Oaks Gallery.  You are invited to visit and take some time to enjoy my paintings, hung for your viewing and purchase. I am usually in my studio and workshop onsite, and always happy to discuss any work or commission with you. 

All artworks are best viewed in person and The Oaks Gallery is the perfect place to visit. Easy to locate at 30 Driving Creek Road, car parking off-road, and disabled access available, makes this an enjoyable visit. Eftpos, Visa and Mastercard on-site takes care of your purchases, opening hours during the summer are most days 10am to 4pm, and winter hours are reduced. If the signs are out, and the flag is flying, the Gallery is open.


This gallery of paintings portrays just a small number of those currently for sale. It reflects a range of different genres, styles and mediums that I enjoy using. Unframed, framed, mounted and stretched canvases are available. Prices available on request. Please use the Contact Me page.

Artworks can be viewed at the artist’s studio and gallery at 30 Driving Creek Rd, Coromandel. Visit to see the full range, and have a chat. Commissions on request.

Resin Creations

Resin is a very versatile medium to have fun with. You can create amazing things like cheeseboards, beautiful and functional platters, coasters, and small resin items like pyramids and crystals.    Native NZ and exotic woods have been sourced from a local mill for the cheeseboards and platters.

All made in my studio and sold in The Oaks Gallery in Coromandel. Unique gifts for house warming, weddings, thank yous – something just a little bit special. Eftpos, Visa and Mastercard available for your purchases. Car parking on-site, disabled access.
