“I love to watch the dancing shadows created by the sun shining through trees, sparkles on the ocean, shapes, patterns and colours of the flowers and leaves through all their changes with each season... these things make my heart sing!”  

For Joni painting is an intuitive process, of creating interesting spaces, a layering of experiences. It is a process of being present to what comes, changes in light and form, discovering new subtleties.  

Our experiences in the world are incredibly layered. Each moment, each layer is transforming, fragile and fleeting. I want to remind my viewers to notice the moments. 

Over the last decade Joni has developed a unique and distinct style working in watercolour and ink.   

Her work includes large original paintings, botanical illustrations, Art Prints, Cards and catalouge & product design. She has exhibited in group and solo shows throughout New Zealand.
