Monochrome Inc in NZ House and Garden

My favourite interior designer (and lovely friend) Andrew Loader has been featured in this months NZ House and Garden. Monochrome Inc is a fabulous interior design business based in Auckland.

I was lucky enough to have one of my artworks in the photos (above - caption reads - Called Wahine Toa, this red torso by artist Sophia Elise features a Maori koru pattern rendered in dots). Andrew and Mike bought my torso as a feature artwork for their bedroom a few months ago and I was stoked that it was photgraphed and included inthis feature - what a huge honour!

The rest of the beautiful artwork you see in this article is done by Mike Galvin (another wonderful friend!)

To read the full article go and grab a copy today! :-)

absolute fantastic! Your torso fits perfect, just as always been there...I saw your torso on fb as well, but in that composition and arrangement it starts to unfold!

Hi Heide - thanks so much!! It's always great as an artist to see where the artwork found it's home - how it works with the room and other decor etc. This torso was alos recently used to dress another house for a tv show - yay! :-)
