Why Bippity Bison?
Bippity Bison came from a spontaneous thought. I enjoy both its alliteration as well as its juxtaposition. Its sound perfectly represents my style: soft and gentle with bold shapes and rigid forms. I create images with strong lines and colours.
Bison are unwavering creatures with fearless silhouettes of strength.
Bippity is whimsical and undefined, which is an element in my Art to encourage the audience to engage with their imagination.
I came across Millie Marotta’s colouring book two years ago which fascinated me. With time I started creating my own concepts inspired by her designs and quickly rediscovered my passion for the small details.
My experience with Art not only allowed me to enjoy something new but to realize that it has been following me from an early age. Appreciating small elements of objects such as doorways, hinges, cogs and roofing beams was something I never thought would evolve into my passion. I was and I am still moved by the layers of details, all the little parts that contribute distinctively to a whole.
Follow and share my journey there will be many more dots, lines, shapes and great fun to come!

I was born and raised in New Zealand as a free-range child of four, free to explore, create and discover to my heart’s content. My adventure now is a disjointed cycling trip across Asia with my trinkets and art supplies in tow. I am currently residing in the bustling chaos that is Hanoi, Vietnam.
