Original framed acrylic painting
289 x 299mm
In my work I wanted to explore the surreal world under the surface of the water, combined with the familiarity of house plants. I want my art to give viewers a feeling of being in a dream, with vivid colours and patterns making my art feel both peaceful and chaotic. I have grown up exploring the forests and mountains of Aotearoa, and I've spent plenty of time swimming in lakes, rivers and the ocean. I care deeply about the conservation of the environment, especially the preservation of untouched native forests and clean rivers. My work has always been influenced by nature, from forests to the ocean.
