Honouring the process


Flox’s intricately hand-cut stencils are what sets her apart from the rest, prompting a demand for these as artworks in their own right.

With a philosophy deeply ingrained in the value of the hand-made, her processes pay homage to the craft of the cut – what she refers to as her Labour of Love.

Art with meaning


Regardless of the commercial success Flox experiences she believes in returning to the original departure point of home and that of being a fine artist.

Connecting with our dynamic environment and cultural diversity is a place of meaning for Flox and a constant source of inspiration.

Sustainable selections


Flox has always been inspired by the ethos of the Arts and Crafts movement of the late 19th century, which valued craftmanship over anonymous mass production.

Adapting this idea in her own way Flox has created a selection of beautiful reusable items for everyday use.

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.
