Art styling

Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.
Oscar Wilde



Curate an art collection as individual as you.
Personal art curation, styling and advice.

Whether you just can't choose or would like some guidance in getting your walls picture perfect, I now offer personal art styling within the Auckland area. I come to your home and together we can discuss and explore what you want to achieve with the art in your home. From there I can suggest, source, purchase and install everything you need to fill your home with art you love. 

Years in the art industry have given me an appreciation of how we can make attainable art collections that transcend merely being on trend. It’s about finding pieces that are personal to you, thinking outside the square and discovering your own personal art language that you can build upon forever. It’s a completely individual recipe combining pieces that reflect you, that make you happy, make you laugh and make you think - all while looking drop-dead stunning together.


So where to from here?

I offer complete art styling and curation packages to get you to this point, from discovering your style to wiping the very last speck of dust off your final display.  Whether you feel like you don’t have a style (trust me, you do) or that you already have a strong style that you want help honing in to a knock-out collection, and everything in between. No matter who you are I will find you a room full of beautiful artworks, curated especially for you with meaning and intent. Together we’ll discover what pieces will fill your heart and make for a jaw-dropping display that visitors to your home won't be able to stop thinking about.

It works like this…

There are no store affiliations or cookie cutter formulas for getting your home and art collection to REALLY sing, instead every step is completely unique to you. Even as an artist myself, I do not push my own pieces or my own style unless specifically asked. Art is so persona,l and I'm excited and dedicated to finding what is perfect for you. This is not hanging some pretty pictures for a home styling, it’s in a whole different league of personal style.

 

I come to you

It starts with an in-home consultation which takes about 1 1/2 - 2 hours, I come to you and we talk through what look you’re wanting to achieve. In our initial consultation, we will discuss layout options and requirements (how many pieces, sizes etc), establish a theme or colour palette (if you want one!) and talk through what kind of art is best for you. While this process generates an entire look and collection, it is SO important that you love each individual piece as a standalone artwork.

We can also set a framework for you to continue collecting and building on what we set up. Existing pieces, children’s art, family heirlooms, photographs, even the TV can all be part of the plan. We’ll also go through framing options and how this can work with furniture, paint colours and practicality.

Basically, we’ll cover everything and anything so that at the end I’m ready to…

Find your art

After our meeting I go away and power up my superpower - finding anything and everything. I have almost a decade of experience in the art and design scene, and a passion for hunting out the unusual and beautiful using an ever growing and very long list of places to source every imaginable treasure.  Armed with everything we’ve discussed I’ll scour the earth for the absolute most perfect pieces for your home. They’ll be things you didn’t know you couldn’t live without until we pop them in there.


Make a plan + make it happen

I then come up with a plan, specifying the perfect pieces, framing solutions and arrangement for your home. This will be presented as a full mock-up of your room. Once this is finalised, I will personally source the artworks, arrange all the framing and hanging. All pieces are framed using various methods and styles by my expert framer. I’ll select the very best solution for each and every piece. I'll then arrange to professionally install your new art as per our plan.  Within 6 - 8 weeks of our initial meeting you will have your dream art collection adorning your walls.  Quite literally, picture perfect.
