Toni’s paintings are heavily influenced by the local environment – the surrounding countryside and shore lines, the mountains and native bird life of New Zealand.
Contemporary landscapes in her signature style of acrylic and charcoal form the Hidden Mountain series, delivering peaceful artworks that combine nature’s elements. There is often a secondary aspect to the painting that the viewer doesn’t always see at first glance, with native birds and other figures woven into the scenery.
Her Sunsets and Silhouettes series explores a looser approach, the brushwork being led by the painting itself, although birds still feature with regularity.
Toni also creates abstract pieces in acrylic, resin and mixed media to further explore nature, resulting in another new series of work – Horizons – inspired by New Zealand’s ever-changing coastlines.
Toni began painting in 2016 after visiting the Raglan Arts Weekend where she was inspired by the artists she met and the paintings exhibited. “Self-taught, I continue to explore a range of mediums and further develop my own style. I tend to get easily bored with one methodology and find that adding variety keeps my work fresh and evolving.”
Over the past three years Toni has produced a range of work and taken part in group and solo exhibitions both locally and overseas. Her originals and limited edition prints can now be found around the country, as well as in Australia, Japan, USA, UK and Europe.
