Hayley King is the lady behind Flox, her trademark native birds, ferns and flowers are a celebration of Aotearoa’s environmental taonga (treasures) Her works are always vibrant and confident in colour. Hayley's intricately hand-cut stencils are what sets her apart from the rest. With a philosophy deeply ingrained in the value of the hand-made, her processes pay homage to the craft of the cut – what she refers to as her Labour of Love. Since 2015 Flox has focused on honing new ideas, exploring other cultures and pushing her own artistic boundaries. This has resulted in a three month Artist Residency in Taiwan in 2015, and in 2016 a journey to Udaipur in India, to again expand her international audiences.
