Bio

bernie winkels

berniewinkels.com

Bernie Winkels is a ceramicist and painter based in Hawkes Bay. His expressive and imaginative works are often humorous and playful commentaries on life in the 21st century. Pertinent, honest, and often irresistibly tongue and cheek. His works are conversation starters in their own right inspired by daily invents, media, and personal experience.
