Contemporary Abstract Artist based in Auckland, New Zealand

Creating abstract art using multiple mediums inspired by nature and my surroundings, I like to think of my work to be constantly evolving in line with my current experiences and interests, resulting in art pieces that are close to my heart, holding a memory of a moment in my life.

Creativity takes courage.
- Henri Matisse

I explore concepts or ideas that appeal to my thoughts and senses using various art mediums. My work is diverse and not limited to a particular style but rather embraces the infinite facets of abstract art as a form of expression. I specialize in alcohol ink & mixed media but also keep exploring various mediums as I see fit for what I intend on creating.

I work in a home studio in Epsom, Auckland and take studio visits by appointment. Enquiries & commissions are most welcome, I enjoy working on custom commissions so if you're after something in particular, drop me an email.

Making progress with this piece. It's taking me a long time to finish this because I'm not painting as often as before due to circumstances. Giving myself and my art time while trying not to panic about "falling back" at the same time.

Everything on social media looks effortless & fast due to media consumption preference. Not everything is as fast in real life 😉

I hardly work in my studio during school holidays so I tend to go back to familiar mediums that I can work on safely and in small progressions with my 4yo around in the house. This also gives me the down time to explore ideas I have in my pile of "art ideas". This 20cm mini is a product of this process.⁣
⁣
Not sure if I'll keep going with this but it was sure fun to have the idea come to life!⁣

Exhibiting a few of my work at @campqualitynz Art Exhibition Fundraiser for NZ kids living with cancer. Such an amazing cause to exhibit with and funds raised will go towards purchasing art tools, materials etc for kids to use during camp. Gives me so much joy to have my work serve a purpose in this way. ♥️
