NZ Artist, Anna Mollekin
“Art is an escape for me from the hustle of everyday life. I create because it makes me feel whole and it is my passion.” - Anna Mollekin, New Zealand contemporary artist
I was born in Thames, New Zealand and studied a Bachelor of Media Arts in Hamilton. I now live near the beach in Auckland, New Zealand with my family. After being a graphic designer for 18 years, I'm now following my passion of working as a full-time artist.
My journey as an artist has been both revitalised and influenced by my trips abroad to places like India and my year sabbatical living in China in 2015. From the use of bright colours to patterns, the inspiration is evident in my work.
I am a contemporary New Zealand artist working both in ink pen and digital mediums. I am a proud Kiwi and am inspired by our beautiful country, exploring themes of New Zealand, and it's flora and fauna.
