Trevor Lloyd was a pioneer of etching in New Zealand and was one the country’s leading political cartoonists. Initially, he was inspired by his father, a farmer, who was an amateur artist. For most of his career he had no thumb on his writing hand and was blind in his left eye. Much of his etching work was inspired by his interest in the Maori culture and language, where he created bush scenes populated with fairy-like people, based on the patupaiarehe of the Maori.

Lloyd’s work is well-represented in the Auckland Art Gallery collection.
