 Where do I create?

Private Arts is a boutique art studio in southeast Queensland, Australia. The Jonique Designer Collections is an extension of our artistic range and made in Australia. 

As the creator of Private Arts, our designer was raised in South Africa at the time of deep political and racial divisions between the black and white people of Southern Africa. That rich cultural spirit and human struggle for equality have developed my imagination and desire to express life through art, fashion and culture. #alllivesmatter 

Jonique Designer's Backstory



I developed my strong sense of color and graphic style from the African people.  My work reflects strength and boldness combining geometrical patterns in earthy tones or vibrant color which is synonymous with tribal dress. These influences still resonate with me today as I create art into fun fashion and home decor, adding a modern touch inline with the latest trends.

In my early 20's, I further developed my artistic knowledge studying the 'Old Masters of Europe' and understanding technique, light and color. In my 30's. I completed a Diploma at the School of Color and Design in Sydney Australia, and my true artistic abstract style using mixed media was unearthed.

Imagination is everything. Nothing would be created if it was at first not imagined.

I further experimented with various mediums to create an organic fusion of light and color. I let the painting speak for itself to stimulate my imagination by tapping into my own experiences, emotions and interpretation of life. 

I have a deep sense that every person has a purpose and a talent that must be explored and shared with others.

While creative work has always been my passion, life took me on a different path and you try to be the person others want you to be. Everything happens for a reason and my dream is to create art that someone, somewhere at sometime will have a connection to.

Join our creative and colorful journey

Creativity and ideas belong to an artist's soul. Come join me on my creative journey. My perspective is to have fun, do what I love and hopefully have our customers cherish our creativity as an expression of your uniqueness.  

On launching Private Arts Design Gallery I quote Steve Jobs........... 'Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in outer layers of the product or service'................
