elke emerald

I am nourished and inspired by colour and nature. New Zealand born and raised in Australia, my return to Aotearoa/New Zealand has been a heart-hearkening for me. I have always painted, coloured, embroidered and pottered with creative projects and my return to Aotearoa in 2011 awakened a serious commitment to the tactile colourful joy of acrylics. I live a somewhat trans-Tasman life now, back and forth between my university teaching and research work based at Griffith University in Australia and my rich creative life at home in Aotearoa. My paintings are intuitive journeys into a theme or colour or feeling. You will often find forests, water and birds in my paintings. My hope is that as you look at these paintings you will feel uplifted and inspired. elke emerald joined Society6 on September 5, 2014
