"Hi, my name is Jay-De. I more commonly go by Jay.
I am a local artist from Taupō and I have lived here for the majority of my life. I am 17 years old and started painting during the Covid-19 lockdown to combat the feelings of isolation and loneliness I was experiencing at that time.
I have struggled for most of my life to find outlets for my emotions, and painting has really helped me express what I couldn't before. I have no formal training in art, outside of a few intermediate classes, and am completely self-taught. I mainly work with acrylics and graffiti markers, but I have also experimented with oils and charcoals.
I am very excited for this exhibition as it is my first time showing my art in a public setting."
