ABOUT WAIATA

Born in Aotearoa New Zealand and now living in London.
Background in Fashion, Painting and Jewellery design.

My ART practice is a culmination of a great interest in grids, the sublime and pattern repetition.
There is an ethereal element to the paintings, usually with a topographical view point to get a big picture perspective.
Nothing is pre-planned, instead an instinctual grid is hand sewn directly Into the canvas to form an idea of a landscape.
Horizontal lines are favoured-though I do use verticals mostly to pronounce the horizontal!
Patterns create a dreamscape for my imagination to explore. From then it is a long process of finding what I want to SEE. 
Commissions welcome.
