My name is Pia, I am a contemporary, floral based full time artist, residing in Adelaide with my husband and children, and dogs. I was born and raised in Adelaide and have spent time living abroad. I currently work in my studio, situated in my backyard garden, in the Southern Suburbs of Adelaide.
I returned to my creative practice following on from a successful career as a landscaper designer, fusing together my love for flowers, extensive plant knowledge, and previous painting experience. I specialise in acrylic - based work, and love the opportunity to bring the beauty of flowers into people’s homes, along with nostalgic still life items, including teacups, saucers and vases. My floral pieces consist of an intense, bright yet contrasting colour palette.
In addition to my floral still life pieces, I also hand build individual, unique ceramic vases and platters. I am constantly inspired by the endless possibilities and versatility that ceramics have to offer. Inspired by my childhood memories of my Great Aunt’s cottage garden, I endeavour to evoke feelings of nostalgia and memory with the floral designs that I paint onto the ceramic pieces.
