Joni Murphy is a full time artist based in Taranaki. Inspired by the traditional paintings made by Botanical artists aims of observing and recording, Joni's art is informed by living specimens gathered from her surroundings, using watercolor and ink, working large scale on canvas to create exciting, energetic works of many layers, which seem to come to life.
"My intention is to evoke nostalgic memories of wildflower dells, native bush and forests, untamed nature. I hope to bring to attention the dependency we have on our botanical life, not only for physical wellbeing but for our spiritual/emotional wellbeing also."
