Olinka’s works are held in private collections in New Zealand, Australia and Hong Kong. Her work has been purchased by artist Ralph Hotere and art dealer, Marshall Seifert, also Hong Kong based art dealer Poly Smyth (now in England).

Current areas of interest and on-going development include large and small multimedia work incorporating dead dried animals, vegetable mater, sand, and glass coated in melted polystyrene.

At this moment Heath’s focus lies in iconic exploration. Profoundly affected by the Tingari Cycle of the Australian Aboriginal works, she is drawing heavily from her birth place of Australia to express her New Zealand Taniwha connection.
