My name is Iva and I am a New Zealand based artist in the Canterbury region.
I paint part-time and have had my art displayed in galleries throughout the Selwyn district and Christchurch. As well as being the proud owner of two trophies for my accomplishments.
I am open to commission painting and have done it before. I am currently studying at the University of Canterbury to further my artistic career which is why I can only focus on my art during breaks.
I sell original paintings as well as prints of paintings that have already been sold with the permission of the owners.
Through my art, I endeavor to capture beautifully brief moments from peoples lives and nature and make it ever-lasting artwork they can hold onto for generations to come. Art is always interpreted differently through different eyes, it can speak multitudes to those who connect with it both positively and negatively. Every artist wants a reaction, good or bad because it means that somebody has taken an insight into what they have created and connected with it. Thinking of it literally, a painting is just pigments on a canvas, the beauty comes from the way its interpreted by all who see it.
