My ART offers collectors interest-free loans to buy art from New Zealand and Australia's leading artists.
The system is easy and hassle free.
STEP 1 / APPLY FOR A LOAN
Apply online with My Art for pre-approval before you go shopping, or apply in a participating gallery. You can borrow any amount between $1,000 and $50,000. My Art's partner company, Avanti Finance, will check your credit history, calculate the monthly payment, and confirm by email. Your loan approval is valid for 90 days. Here's the link to My Art Application
STEP 2 / SELECT YOUR ARTWORK
Visit my site and view the artwork and select the piece you would like to purchase. Contact me with the name of the piece of art and we can get the ball rolling.
STEP 3 / FINALISE THE DETAILS
As part of the payment process, the gallery requires a deposit of at least 10% of the cost the artwork. The balance of the purchase price will be covered by your My ART loan. The gallery will send their invoice to My ART and then Avanti Finance will help you finalise your loan contract. You’ll receive a copy of your loan agreement and repayment schedule (nine equal monthly repayments). Your first loan payment will be deducted one month after purchase date.
STEP 4 / ENJOY
Once the deposit is paid and the art loan is in the process, we can package up your artwork and ship it to you. Install your artwork, and enjoy.
Beautiful soft delicate but deadly still life of White Hellebores.
This artwork is named after historic uses of the Hellebore plant. I am interested in the links through the ages for uses of botanicals. Hellebores literally translated, means 'lethal food'.
One of the first documented uses of chemical warfare was during the Siege of Kirrha (mainland Greece) in 585 BC. Hellebore was reportedly used to poison the water system leading into the city, the residents fell ill and were no longer able to fight. The Romans scattered the seeds of the Hellebores plant on their raids across the continent - a reliable source of poison if required.
This series of work is influenced culturally by the Dutch Renaissance painters. I am particularly interested in the way painters from this period used light and textures. My passion for working with something organic and unpredictable is intuitive. The series explores my passion for botanical studies.
There is a painterly quality that draws on the history and emotion.
