A bit about me...
Hi! My name is Darsh Armstrong and I am an Artist based in Auckland, New Zealand.
Thank you for visiting my website, which is an ever-changing and growing collection, showcasing my products.
I love expressing myself through art, working with plants and capturing beauty so others can see my world as I do.
My background is in graphic design, banking and beauty therapy. These are all crazy different, but all were customer focused, which I love. After a number of years in the beauty industry, the long hours and massage lead to some nerve damage in my arms and hands. Leaving an industry which I was passionate about was tough, and my art was what I turned to. Working on my craft really provided a focus and helped me heal.
I have now been selling my craft at local markets and running my small business full time for many years now. :-)
My family and friends are super supportive and for this I will always be grateful. My husband, Rhys, is totally amazing and has been there with me through each step. You will often see him with our little fur baby, Ari, helping out at our market stall. We have a beautiful baby girl named Meela, who has been keeping us busy and making it hard to squeeze in the time for my art but at the same time is the best inspiration.
Enjoy my creations. I hope they make you smile, liven up your home and transport you to another place.
I would love to meet you in person, come along and see us at the markets. :-)
