Artist Profiles » Jayeta Valentine

Jayeta ValentineJayeta is a mixed media artist who works with inks, acrylic paints and impasto. Using neutral sandy tones starkly contrasted with ‘oxides’ and luscious greens, to create bold images typical of her style.

Jayeta is “madly patriotic’ and this enthusiasm for New Zealand informs all her work. The volcanic Taranaki coast continues to be a great source of inspiration but she enjoys the radical environment contrasts found in every nook and cranny of this country.

She describes her working life as the result of accident more than design. Jayeta has sign written boats, dug on archaeological sites and hand painted textiles…to name just a few of her former occupations. With a more recent background in English teaching, she made the happily unplanned switch to teaching Art a few years ago. Jayeta credits this serendipitous move with propelling her into a fulfilling life of painting.

Her works hang in private collections in New Zealand, Australia, Ireland, the UK and the USA.
