Kellie Spence - Arts Canterbury

Kellie Spence


As a contemporary oil painter based in Christchurch, Aotearoa (New Zealand), my journey as an artist has been one of discovery, perseverance, and transformation. I came to painting relatively late in life, at the age of 27, while working as a primary school teacher. Despite starting from humble beginnings, my passion and dedication for the art form quickly became evident. My works began to sell throughout New Zealand and overseas, and I found myself increasingly drawn to the transformative power of painting. Today, my work continues to evolve and grow, driven by a deep desire to capture the beauty and complexity of the world around us.
