Contemporary Artist based in Auckland, New Zealand

Creating 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 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.

In my happy place doing happy things.⁣
Grateful to be able to do this every day.⁣
⁣
Being an artist was never a dream, I didn't grow up doing artsy things, the first art teacher I ever had blew my self confidence apart when it comes to art (I was 7 yo) and I majored in a technical field for my career.⁣
⁣
Even now there are days I feel like an imposter, I'm somewhere I don't belong because I'm not naturally talented in / have formally studied art.⁣
⁣
But I've always had a drive to create. To make things with my hands, to bring a vision in my head to life. This drive keeps me going, keeps me sane and gives me a purpose. ⁣
⁣
Truly fortunate to be here and thank you for being here with me ♥️⁣

Recently I was told that my work is pretty....diverse, which actually was a compliment. There seems to be a subtle expectation that artists should discover their own style, box in with select mediums and keep to it, to give a clearer idea of our work to our audience,  to have that seamless Insta feed that looks well put together ( which is probably a great business strategy). This also results in mastery, being really good at one/select few things.⁣
⁣
While I don't disagree completely with this approach, there are those of us who create, relish that moment of magic and then...move on. Or have the need to be more than just one thing. This results in a diverse portfolio of work but it also allows so much freedom for creative expression and being truly ourselves.⁣
⁣
Right now I'm very much enjoying working on  larger scales of work, using a few techniques that I've discovered through my years with ink. There may be more than two series at work in parallel, time will tell!⁣
⁣
Which one of these two works would you have on your wall? Left or right, comment below! 👇⁣

New series in progress. ⁣
I've been working on a process that takes commitment (time) and also involves relinquishing control. This series is very dependent on some aspects of nature to work its magic while I wait. Patiently. There's no rushing this and I'm happy to wait because it's worth it.⁣

I've been asked for prints quite frequently of late and I've finally decided to offer them. Prints are in the works, should be up in a week or two (available internationally too)!
⁣
For Florescence pieces I might be offering both in arch and rectangular format because I can't decide which I like better.🤭🌸⁣
⁣
Which one do you prefer?⁣

New colour combo for the next Flourish piece. Also I'm super excited I finally figured out how to capture this mix of teal/turquoise/aqua colour better on my phone! Used to be such a challenge, mobile camera apps fail miserably at picking this colour up!
