Meet Your Creator
I am Stacey from New Zealand, based in a teeny tiny town called Wellsford in the upper North Island. I am the founder of Stakiwi Colours, handmade watercolours. I am a watercolour maker with 2 + years of experience. I have a background in primary teaching so I love to share my knowledge with others in an understandable way.
I love to paint with acrylics and watercolours, and I especially love working with pigments of all variations. Because I taught myself how to make watercolour paints, I understand how difficult it is to learn how to make watercolour paint and understand all the facets that it presents. There is a lot that can go wrong and I am presenting you with a unique opportunity to learn how to overcome those obstacles that you can then anticipate and deal with immediately while creating beautiful watercolour paint.
