Hello! My name is Belle.

I'd love to invite you to my colorful journey.

I specialize, painting on canvas & walls, designing lovely terrariums,

and also digital illustrate all my artworks.

I am a decorative paint artist based in South Korea & Auckland. 

Specializing in large wall murals and decorative painting for commercial, public,

and residential clients.

In most of my paintings, I mainly use acrylic paint and form my paintings around collages. 

The most common theme I produce in my paintings and artworks include

plants, nature, and eye-catching items around the house.

I express my feelings on the canvas of mixed timelines and places

with familiar objects in our daily lives which brings out an unreal aspect that

portrays my art style throughout all my artworks.

I have experienced mural painting and chalk art painting at several cafes

and restaurants in NZ, and South Korea.
