About me

 

Evike 2019

 Thank you for visiting my website.

I am a Wellington based artist and poet and the author of two books of my paintings and poems "Where Music Lives" and the Award winning "Laughter and Magic Shoes".

 I was born in Santiago, Chile, of Hungarian parents.  We immigrated to New Zealand when I was a child and this beautiful, welcoming country became our home. Although mainly self taught as an artist I received tuition in earlier years from my grandmother, a trained and gifted artist, craftsperson and poet in her own right.

My work is inspired by people - feelings, interactions, relationships, spirituality, the ever changing dance of life and the search for meaning.  I paint from the heart, with joy and always with love.  I love colour, design, bold lines and folk art traditions, especially Hungarian.

In parallel with developing my art and poetry I have had a career in the business world, including as a senior executive with a major corporate and later as a business consultant.

Painting however has always been my true passion, my compass and home, and in 2006 I realised a long-term dream and opened my own Studio Gallery.

I have exhibited my paintings regularly in various cities around New Zealand including galleries in Wellington and Auckland,in Europe and in my studio gallery.  My work is held in local and overseas collections and has appeared on book covers and in numerous publications.
