About Me

A people watcher, I am most inspired by humans themselves.
Hi, I'm Gemma. ​I'm glad you're here. 
I have been fascinated with painting figures and portraits for the past few years. Although a New Zealander, I was born in Singapore and have spent most of my life abroad. 
My work primarily centers around people. I am fascinated with capturing emotions through a gestural style of painting, using a muted yet unexpected color palette. Recently, I have experimented with more abstract shapes in my backgrounds, exploring how human figures can remain recognizable despite their ambiguity.
