Jen Sievers

Jen was born with colours on her mind and a paint brush in her hand. Ever since, she has pursued a life driven by the sheer joy of drawing, painting and designing. 

Her career started with the first half of a fine arts degree, followed by 15 years of graphic design, and now a return to her true love, painting. She aims to create work that stirs joy, captures movement, and draws viewers into the colour scapes of her vivid imagination. She paints obsessively in her home studio in the foothills of the Waitakeres (when she's not at work or taking care of her crazy toddler). Jen is particularly drawn to large acrylic paintings with fresh colours, sweeping lines and a contemporary edge.
