Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Mixed Media Art Supplies?
Mixed Media Art Supplies is a privately owned New Zealand company based in Auckland. As an artist and complete craftoholic, I know very well how hard it is for artists to ‘make it’ out there in the ‘real’ world. It would be so much more compliant to just find a normal job and make a day to day living. But will I be happy and content? Never!
I have to art. Daily and until way past midnight on occasion. But life is not all play, is it?
With an extensive background varied from customer service, sales, marketing, advertising, merchandising, scrapbook tutor, interior decorator and many more fields, I have spent relentless hours researching and negotiating to bring you Mixed Media Art Supplies as it is today. As always – a work in progress.
Most of the products listed on Mixed Media Art Supplies are sourced locally, many handmade. I believe in helping others that are in a similar situation as what I’ve been a few times before.
