Toni Kingstone works predominantly in acrylic, metallic pigments and resin to create flowing, abstract scenes that capture the mystical light of dusk and dawn, with a wonderful sense of division between earth, sea and sky.  


Working in the style of Magical Realism, Toni brings a New Zealand flavour to this art movement, presenting objects of reality within fantastical dream-like landscapes. Beginning with a concept she is initially led by the flow of the paint itself – guiding the direction with intuitive ‘action’ painting, then adding or removing elements with additional paint, palette knife or brushwork 

“I can control the colours and the movement of the paint but ultimately the paint will blend in a different way each time, resulting in an embodiment of balance and a truly unique piece that can never be replicated”. 

Toni is a regular exhibitor on the national art show circuit, participates in numerous group exhibitions and has taken part in the Raglan Arts Weekend since 2017. Her paintings can be found in the homes of collectors and art lovers both here in NZ and internationally.
