Welcome to my creative world!
Hi, I am Elaine Bozza, a self-taught artist from Sao Paulo, Brazil, living in Auckland, New Zealand.
Because I have always been involved in creative projects such as Art and crafts and photography, and I’m obsessed with learning about Art.
Then in 2014, I decided to move to Aotearoa (New Zealand) and I was looking forward to traveling and experiencing all what NZ had to offer. I wanted to capture the islands natural beauty in a different way and that was when I decided to start learning online more about watercolours and digital art, by using Adobe Fresco/Photoshop and Procreate app.
In 2015, I also went to NSIA, the Culinary & Hospitality School in Auckland, NZ, and at the end of that year the principal of the school invited me to enter the margarine sculpting competition. He taught me sculpting techniques and I went on to win 1st place. It was a great experience and met some incredibly talented people.
In 2019, I started my creative business Ebozzastudio, selling my watercolour illustrations online.
Later I fell in love with pattern design, which became an addiction and it increased my work possibilities.
My passion for drawing led to the character design world in which I’m thrilled to share my stories through illustrations and patterns.
I’m so grateful for being the Winner of the Bird of The Year & New Zealand Native Birds Honey Wrap Design Competition in 2022 and being 6 times among the top 60 in the Spoonflower’s Design Challenges.
There are a few of my popular designs:
Nowadays, I work from home as a freelancer illustrator & surface designer, mainly creating patterns inspired by wildlife & travelling for clients and collaborating with other businesses.
Still, I also love sharing information about environmental issues and encouraging people to know more about how can we preserve and protect our planet.
I’m also participating in the Doodlwear NZ shop ” Art for a cause”, which is a collaboration about supporting nature through charity to the organization: Forest & Bird and Project Jonah NZ until 31/03/2023.
So, LET’S STAY CONNECTED: All my links HERE
