Hello! I'm Ms Pacifica

Artist, Storyteller & World Traveller
Author of "Tongariro Alpine Crossing, more than a physical journey

Exploring the World and really seeing and feeling it through art and stories

In the past I have done a lot of international travel but more recently I’ve been happy to explore closer to home in New Zealand and to paint what I find here. I’ve also reconnected to my roots;  painting the beautiful and unique houses of Auckland New Zealand which can be found in the Facade Art page.

I trained as an architect and got a Bachelor of Architecture degree at the University of Auckland some years ago, so it feels like a full circle. In these uncertain times with pandemics and terrorist threats and increasing focus on environmental sustainability, perhaps appreciating our home and back-yards is aligned with the zeitgeist.

Feel free to explore the art in Art page which is grouped by Category.
