 Joan Blond


Joan Blond

Joan is an abstract expressionist and contemporary artist based in the Yarra Valley, Victoria.  

Joan loves painting generous blocks of colour and her style is vibrantly expressionistic, often incorporating energetic line work. 

Joan mostly paints using acrylics with substance which add texture to her work and at times works with oil paint.   She also loves experimenting with different mediums & washes. 

Joan also takes many cues from contemporary design and her love of interior design.  She loves working with homeowners and designers looking for paintings with a custom colour scheme.

Aliki Kapoor

After completing a BA Fashion at RMIT, Aliki spent 15 years working as a Designer and Product Developer for several leading fashion and athletic/sporting brands.

Since taking a break from fashion to focus on raising her two young daughters, painting has become Aliki's creative outlet.

"I love creating beautiful art and my work is intuitive and created as I go. My inspiration comes in many forms, including fashion, art, nature and colour." Aliki K

The harder part is not knowing exactly what your frame is going to look like in terms of colour and character until you receive it. Sure, you’ll have a general idea of what to expect, but it’s always best to go in with an open mind and expect the unexpected.
