You found me! Welcome!
I'm a full-time mixed media artist based in Upper Moutere, New Zealand. Home is a little farm cottage in the rolling Moutere countryside that I share with my husband Cam & our two girls Lily & Saffie.
Just down the road & next door to the kids School you can often find me making my contemporary stitched paintings & other art works from my pretty Studio Gallery, Woods & Co
in Upper Moutere Village. During the winter months I also teach fireside classes in the studio, if you're keen to do some stitching / painting / collage etc let me know!
Art has always been part of my life and making things comes naturally so most of the techniques I use I've taught myself through a process of experimentation.
My signature stitching through paint acts as another form of mark-making for me which I stumbled into about 3 years ago. I've always used a variety of media & collage with lots of texture in my works, stitch has allowed me to develop a textural layer onto of my paintings which is intricate and reflects beautiful the qualities of nature - my favourite subject matter & a great source of inspiration.
Recently my original work 'Flow' was used as a backgroup for the Australian Inside Out Magazine, May 2017 Edition, Mother's Day Feature ' Favourite Things '. Created in collaboration with Style Editor Jessica Hanson who's beautiful palatte complimented the stitching perfectly. I'm really proud of this piece and excited to share more collaborations in the pipeline.
Instagram is my favourite way to share my new works, recently Stuff.co.nz featured my profile alongside some awesome kiwi insta feeds for their Interior Inspo round up. You can check it out via this link
