Joni is a fulltime artist based in New Plymouth city.
Deeply inspired by the wonder of nature, Joni's art is informed by living specimens gathered from her surroundings. Responding to her immediate surroundings, observing and recording using watercolor and ink on canvas to create fresh, energetic works of many layers, which seem to come to life.
"My intention is to evoke nostalgic memories of wildflower dells, native bush and forests, untamed nature. I hope to bring to attention the dependency we have on our botanical life, not only for physical well-being but for our spiritual/emotional well-being also."
Over the years of her practice, Joni’s work has developed a strong focus on indigenous and endemic plant life. Her aim is to bring awareness to the need to preserve and protect our native species, by showing them in beautiful works of art, developing connections and educating viewers.
