“Creian que yo era surrealista, pero no lo era. Pinte a mi propia realidad.”
-They said I was a Surrealist, but I’ve been painting my own reality-
The Artista Collection is an ode to the strong women that inspire us.
Those are the mothers, the artisans, the women in the NGO we’re working with in Peru, the powerful creative community around us.
We draw inspiration from our beautiful surroundings in the Byron Hinterland, as well as the Andean Mountains. Birth places of Andean Collective.
We’ve designed our pieces with the strong women ahead of their time on our mind. An artist designing her own life, true to herself. Not afraid of her weakness, yet inspired and strengthened by it.
Bold colours with soft floral embroidery, strong shapes with feminine flow.
Soft hills disappearing into the clouds.
Muted shades of green, yellow and orange on a misty morning.
A powerful pink sunset.
Bougainville lining Andean cobble stone streets.
The breathtaking smell of the Angels trumpets hanging heavy from their branches.
The turquoise ocean below a stormy sky.
