Filipa Mundell has always had a strong passion for creativity and a strong believer that you can do anything you set out to do.
Her career as an artist initially started by creating paintings for her own home when she couldn’t find artwork that she liked and truly reflected her personality and style. From that initial painting experience she approached a friend who also happened to be a well-known artist – Mark Olsen. Mark saw Filipa’s potential undeveloped talent and offered to teach her how to paint in oils. Filipa spent many hours learning from Mark and as a result her paintings evolved very quickly and she held her first exhibition in 2009.
Fillipa is drawn to strong colours and geometrical shapes influence the painting. Layers of colour are used to build up the framework of the art which is driven by passion and emotion.
Examples of Fillipa’s artwork can be viewed at Mobile Art Gallery, 23 Edwin Street, Mt Eden, Auckland.
