ABOUT THE ARTIST
Raised beside the beach, New Zealand artist Jade Sintes draws inspiration from her coastal surroundings.
"I work in a variety of mediums, from inks to oils and everything in between, using a blend of the local landscape and iconic Kiwi symbology as the foundation for my art".
She started drawing at a very young age, and went on to study the arts at Secondary School, where she developed her love of painting. At University she branched off, following a passion for business, and completed a Commerce Degree in Marketing & Human Resource Management. She now works as a Project Manager for large creative agency based in Christchurch. "I love working in a creative environment, surrounded by incredibly talented designers. I draw inspiration from them everyday".
In her spare time, Jade can be found either exploring mountain ranges, or in the ocean surfing. "Surfing allows me to study the power of the ocean, and capture it in my paintings - a force not to be reckoned with, but equally just as beautiful".
Jade paints everything from wildlife, native birds, through to landscapes and seascapes. Be sure to check out her more recent oil works, which include an array of colour waves and glistening beach scenes.
