In a Flox first, I have created my own limited edition rugs!

These lush pieces add a confident touch of nature and rich palette of colours to any room. There are two designs available – Huia Aubergine and Flying Kingfisher Aubergine.

The Huia Aubergine Rug is based on one of my popular rounds. The Huia is now extinct but is iconic in New Zealand. In Maori culture, Huia were rare birds treasured for their precious plumes, and feathers were given as tokens of friendship and respect.

The Flying Kingfisher Rug is a homage to the kōtare. Kingfishers are very social and fiercely loyal. Flying amongst the kauri and bird of paradise flowers, this beautiful bird should be winging its way to your place.

Both designs come in a limited edition of 10 and each rug is individually numbered. In true Trans-Tasman colab style the rugs were designed and assembled in Aotearoa; and manufactured in Australia.

My Story

As an aerosol and stencil artist with a fine art degree, Flox has been making her mark on the inner cityscape of Auckland since 2003.

Her trademark native birds, ferns and flowers are a celebration of Aotearoa’s environmental taonga. Using distinctly vibrant and confident colour on a scale combined with delicacy they have magically transformed grey walls into vibrant depictions of the natural world.

Flox swiftly expanded her practice into prints, publications, murals, graphic design, live painting, projects and workshops for both schools and the wider public. She has been involved in numerous collaborations, charity work and both group and solo exhibitions.

Her accessible narratives have broadened the appeal and shaped her into one of New Zealand’s most recognised contemporary artists.

In recent years Flox has focused on refining new ideas, exploring other cultures and pushing her own artistic boundaries. This resulted in a three-month Artist Residency in Taiwan and a journey to Udaipur in India, to expand her international audiences.

Seen everywhere from Berlin, Hong Kong, New York, Taiwan, India and the US, Flox continues spreading her wings and making her presence felt across public spaces and homes worldwide.
